Research means

Residents benefit from the support of the Iméra team, which facilitates the conditions of their stay and the organization of their activities within the limits of available financial resources. These normally relate to the theme of their program but can also be transversal to other programs. In this context, Iméra helps residents to establish new contacts with the scientific and cultural environment of the Aix-Marseille region.

Iméra does not currently have artists’ workshops.

Residents commitments

The Iméra resident agrees to accept all the principles and living rules contained in the Institute Charter.

Administrative help and logistical support

Iméra helps residents to open a bank account, with Prefecture formalities (Resident Permit delivery) and for children’s registration in schools where necessary.
