Residential study (small group – 3 days to 3 weeks)

The estate “Les Treilles”, located in South of France (Var), has been created to offer conditions suitable for concentration and creativity. Residential studies for small groups are intended for all French and foreign researchers or creators. They are open to all fields of knowledge and art where creativity can express itself beyond the laboratory or the studio.

The duration is from 3 days minimum to three weeks maximum. Participants take charge of their travel expenses, but transfers to and from the airport (Nice) or the railway station (Les Arcs Draguignan) are arranged and covered by the foundation.

Accommodation is also supported by the Foundation. Please note that the invitations are strictly personal; then, spouses or companions are not allowed. Before applying, please read our accommodation conditions.

Within one month after the end of the residential study, the organizer will send a two-page summary of the meeting for publication on the foundation’s website AND a short synthesis in French (half a page) for the Board’s annual activity report.

Furthermore, the Fondation des Treilles expects that its support be acknowledged in any work or publication resulting from the residency; authors are invited to forward a copy of their publication.


How to apply?

The potential organizer submits a residential study proposal, for all disciplines, by completing the application form and sending it before the deadline. Please note that applications that are incomplete or received after the deadline for submission will not be considered.
