Share and disseminate your research and creations through DEMO

Hexagram is inviting all co-investigators and student members of the network to apply for support towards outreach and dissemination of their research-creation activities.

What is the DEMO program?
DEMO is the interuniversity research-creation residency program, one of the main programs put in place by Hexagram to support and promote collaboration in research, through short stays in research groups and labs or collaborating organizations in spaces of practice affiliated with Hexagram.

About this call
The current context has had an impact on the program of residencies planned with our partner institutions, therefore Hexagram wishes to support co-investigators and student members to communicate and interact with the scientific community and the public about the work they have carried out throughout 2020 and 2021, their results, their approach, in order to foster interest and a better understanding of research-creation. This is an outreach support initiative for activities planned and/or for the presentation of research-creation; the program does not entail creation grants.
