The platform annually awards production grants to outstanding European media artists and supports research, production, presentation and distribution of media art in Europe and beyond.

Short history:
1995 the European Media Artists in Resicence Exchange (EMARE) was initiated by werkleitz, Hull Time Based Arts and Intermedia Department Budapest.
The ongoing residency exchange had various partners and members during the years. In 2007 the European Media Art Network (EMAN) was founded as institutional backbone for the EMARE program.
In 2007 and 2008 EMAN received support from the European Union's 'Culture 2007-2013' program to organize a series of residencies for European artists as part of the residency programs of the four EMAN members. In 2012 and 2013 the EU supported an exchange of European and Mexican artists for residencies at the four European EMAN members and media art labs in Mexico. For 2014 and 2015 EMAN received similar EU funding to organize a residency exchange for artists from Europe, Canada and Australia.

The three EU fundings for these activities resulted in the move exhibitions and werkleitz festival series in Halle:
