The Research center at the International Institute of Puppetry is offering two programs for research residencies (one with the other without grant) to encourage scholarly research about puppetry, to support and mentor artistic creation, and to strengthen the links between the research and artistic communities.

The research residencies at the International Institute of Puppetry are open to scholars, artists and postgraduate students from anywhere in the world.

Residents can have access to the Library, mentoring support, contacts and networking possibilities with the partners of the IIM. Accommodation is provided free of charge at the Villa d'Aubilly.
The residents must sign a research contract which includes the donation of a copy of their final project (e.g. thesis, book, documentary etc.) to the Library.
