Dear Roger and Dear Yasminers,
Allow me to contribute to your SEAD project with this reference on a
similar initiative, leaded by José Luis Brea (1957-2010), in which I had
the honour of participating, in 2007.
"White Paper on the Interrelation of Art, Science and Technology in Spain"
FECYT (Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology)
National Book Catalogue Number: M-9179-2007
This document is a bilingual edition in Spanish and in English and has
these four different chapters:
1. Training: Salomé Cuesta and Bárbaro Miyares (Polytechnic University
2. Research: Juan Martín Prada (University of Cádiz)
3. Production: Roc Parés (Pompeu Fabra University)
4. Dissemination: Remedios Zafra (University of Seville)
Pau Alsina (Open University of Catalonia) was the relator of the book and
can provide more details on the whole process of preparation, discussion
and final elaboration of the conclusions, actions and recommendations to
Policy Makers gathered in this book.
I hope you all find it useful.

> learn from experiences in other countries, and vice versa, institution
