The Innovative Media Research and Commercialization Center is now accepting applications for their biannual Researcher in Residency Program (RRP). Ideal for creative technologists, Intermedia artists, and New Media producers, this 8 to 12-week program takes place every Fall and Spring at the IMRC Center in Orono, Maine.

The residency supports a period of concentration and immersion in creative investigation, cutting-edge research or production of visionary, experimental applications and projects. Potential initiatives might range from live Intermedia productions, sound and physical computing works to technical prototypes, installations and tactical media events. The RRP is committed to supporting a diverse and broad ranging creative environment. We consequently encourage applications from the broadest possible range of individuals to creative technologists to this program.

Accepted awardees are awarded a stipend, studio space, and 24/7 access to the multimillion dollar, state of the art IMRC’s, studio spaces, fabrication and prototyping labs, and more.

The Fall 2016 application opens on Monday, December 14th and closes on Tuesday, January 14th. For eligibility requirements, application instructions and more information, please visit www.imrccenter.com/researcher-in-residence
