VERTIGO is a program which organizes 45 artistic residencies over a 3-year period in order to create new synergies between artistic communities, cultural institutions and innovation stakeholders.

Artists accompagned by their producer choose the Research & Development ICT-Project they want to collaborate on from a list of available projects.

This residency will provide the opportunity to develop the production of an orginal artwork, a fresh approach to innovation challenges.

Artists, the European program lets you :
> COLLABORATE on an ICT Research&Development project
> DESIGN original prototypes
> OBTAIN support for commissioned works
> BENEFIT from the exposure of a unique cultural network

The application platform is now open and will close on May 22nd 2017 (10:00 CET).


The call builds on the STARTS initiative (Innovation at the nexus of Science, Technology, and the ARTS) which promotes the collaboration of artists with R&D projects in the field of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) as catalysts of innovation processes.

The call is open to artists willing to collaborate with the partners of an R&D ICT-Project in order to develop, in particular through the production of an original artwork based on its technology, a fresh approach to its innovation challenges.

The list of R&D ICT-projects selected by VERTIGO is now available.

After having chosen a project in this list, applicants shall elaborate the idea of an original artwork based on its technology. They shall also explain the projected process of its design and production including the expected interactions with the project partners for the investigation of the artistic and technological issues to be explored through experimentation.


Choose the R&D ICT-Project you want to collaborate with from a list of available projects;

Present your artistic work including your bio and selected works;

Describe the artwork you propose to produce for the selected R&D ICT-Project and its production workplan;

Should you need additional resources other than those provided by the grant or/and by the R&D ICT-Project, you may apply with a third-party (Producer) committed to support your artistic production.


An international and interdisciplinary jury will review the applications received. Up to 10 VERTIGO STARTS Artistic Residencies will be selected and published.


All parties involved in a selected residency will sign a co-production contract
