To award and foster excellence and widespread influence in Art, Design and Technology, Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID) and Intel Corporation have launched a new special research fellowship program.
The Intel Research Fellowship @ CIID recognizes and resources outstanding researchers who extend the impact of research in interaction design, artistic practice in technology and creative inquiry in communications and media.
The Fellowship will be offered to practice-based researchers in art, design and technology, and will support the development of self-led projects that push boundaries in practice and thinking in these areas.
Selected researchers will be offered the following:
- Up to 30,000 USD project budget (This maximum should include subsistence and accommodation estimates for the duration of the residency)
- A 12-month program cycle, starting from 7 October 2013 (the Fellow is expected to reside in the Copenhagen region for at least 50% of this period)
- Space and facilities for research and practice, including digital fabrication and workshop facilities
- Access to a global network of expertise through world-class research-practitioners in art, design and technology
The 12 month program starting in October 2013 indicates an exciting collaboration with Intel that provides Fellows with an opportunity to work in close collaboration with CIID’s research team, and engage with technologists and researchers at Intel.
The Fellowship will be awarded annually to an individual or group of practitioners/researchers with demonstrated potential to further disseminate and extend the influence of outstanding research and projects, perspectives, methods, and tools that contribute to a shared knowledge base and to the development of curricula in interaction design and related fields.
