Meet the S+T+ARTS community

The Science+Technology+Arts = STARTS Initiative is a program of the European Commission that encourages synergies between the arts and technology that support the innovation industry and society. STARTS promotes the inclusion of artists in research and innovation activities throughout Europe. The STARTS community as well as interested artists and experts are warmly welcome to get together in this Networking Event.

Architecture today is a multidisciplinary knowledge platform, combining input from engineering, the humanities, and the environmental, cognitive and social sciences.

The STARTS Tour showcases best practice examples at the intersection of science, technology and art. From scenarios for local, circular economies based on food-waste craft, to large-scale data driven explorations of the condition of our oceans and visionary new scenarios for sustainable data storage, the artistic perspectives at the heart of this tour tackle the big challenges that lie ahead of us through both a microscopic and a macroscopic lens.

The intersection between Art and Industry

In this workshop, we will dive deep into the RAMP initiative and the Better Factory project underlying collaboration opportunities and challenges between industry and arts. We will do this with the help of the STARTS Collaboration Toolkit and the Art-Enabled Prototyping process within Better Factory.
