Project no. 1 Support for pilot projects
> to create an economy of production and distribution through international cooperation
A selection of artistic projects and digital tools (creation of performing arts shows, installations, software and materials) corresponding to a specific call for projects will receive the support of RAN members in 2010. The teams selected will be given the opportunity to complete a “research and creation programme” which includes a mobile residency in specific locations (training centre, research laboratory, cultural site, etc.) and incorporates critical observation and mediation experiences with the general public. The projects will be followed by a Support Committee and will receive co-production aid from RAN members.

Project no. 2 / A cross-disciplinary online digital arts guide
> catalogue skills and connect talents
This online guide is intended as an open and flexible tool aimed at cultural, scientific, business and industry professionals as well as the general public. The purpose of this vast “real-time” directory – to which contribution is voluntary – is to catalogue and centralize opportunities and specific skills in the area of digital arts and above all to draw up a national map of resource sites. It is also a means to collect and organize the contact information of suppliers and documents by area of interest, but also to keep people informed, put contributors in contact and publish data on line.
