The successful candidates will be awarded a " research allowance " of up to €10,000 net per project " in order to clarify their intentions, analyse their feasibility and come up with a concrete project that will be the subject of a production ". At the end of a maximum period of three months, they will propose the detailed documents allowing the costing of the realization or the setting in production of their project. Various sites under the authority of the CNM and the Conservatoire du littoral may be involved in the presentation, exhibition or installation of works that wish to be included.
