The Artistsinlabs team also co-operates on international projects, with selected funding from various sources.

We already have a PHD program called Z-NODE, in corporation with the University of Plymouth, (art, technology and science) with 15 researchers enrolled. Another project entitled CLOSED is a design/sound project in corporation with IRCAM in Paris, the University of Verona and the Technical University of Berlin. This project is funded by the European Union.
