While Europe is strongly pushing innovation based on technological and scientific progress, it has always put social and ecological priorities on the same level as economic growth. This has led to a new alliance of the arts with S&T as part of a European innovation policy rooted in values and culture. Artists become key drivers of ‘art-driven innovation’ towards ecologically conscious and human compatible technologies. In this spirit, DG CONNECT launched S+T+ARTS - innovation at the nexus of Science, Technology and the ARTS – and the European Commission president proposed the ‘New European Bauhaus’, where synergies between art and novel technologies are identified as enablers of the Green Transition. The present call will thus encourage actors in R&I to adopt artistic experimentation as a complementary method for technology development and use across all EC programs.
This call encourages a mind change regarding the role of the arts in R&I in the spirit of a European innovation policy based on culture and values. It is building on results of the S+T+ARTS program that has demonstrated concrete benefits of art-technology collaboration for digital innovation and uptake of digital in society and economy.
To this end, the consortium will fund (via FSTP in form of grants) S+T+ARTS residencies of artists to be hosted by EC funded projects, technology institutions, or SMEs/industrial actors (both digital providers and end-users of digital). In the spirit of the topic, hosts of residencies must provide access to technology free of cost. The consortium will mentor residencies and help in follow-up/exploitation of the outcomes (commercial or other). Non-exclusive examples of intended outcomes include:
