Institute for Advanced Study of Aix-Marseille University

IMéRA is the Institute for Advanced Study of Aix-Marseille University - AMU. IMéRA receives researchers and artists under residence schemes of 3 to 12 months (depending on calls for applications); it also accommodates a few multi-disciplinary teams with a collective project for short duration stays. Residents work on their own research projects in connection with Aix-Marseille teams and research centres.

Research projects carried out at IMéRA focus on cross-fertilisation within social science, within science, between social science and formal/experimental and health science, and on relationships between art and science, exploring and enhancing the potential openings between such disciplines and the new objects that may be formed there.

IMéRA aims at fostering the emergence and development of world-class cross-disciplinary research approaches and grooms young researchers for such approaches on Aix-Marseille University ground.

IMéRA also welcomes projects bearing on Mediterranean territories or submitted by researchers from the Mediterranean rim.


Residents undertake to contribute to cross-disciplinary meetings and debates organized by IMéRA during their stay. Furthermore, fellows commit to the following:

  • Resident agrees to provide feedback on the content of their research to the IMéRA science community.
  • They will present their work at a public feedback workshop and provide a summary of their paper.
  • They may organise a research seminar with IMéRA's support.
  • They will provide a written report on their activities before the end of their stay.
  • They may grant short interviews on their work's progress.
