Luis Miguel Girao who is working the EC STARTS program sent in this
statement to our SEAD report 5 year update which is interesting to see
the discourse that is being used in different sectors
The Commissioner of the European Commission for Research, Science and
Innovation, Carlos Moedas, in his official press conference of the ICT
"I think that more and more we all understand that innovation in the
future will be on the intersection of arts and sciences."
During the coming 5 years the European Union will ignite open
innovation all over its territory in a transversal manner throughout
disciplines in order to boost both the creation of new jobs and its
positioning as global leader. Horizon 2020 is the main instrument to
implement these activities. STARTS - the Science, Technology and the
Arts initiative of the Digital Agenda for Europe is the first match of
that ignition process. Within Horizon 2020 a first call for projects
was just launched to promote the integration of artists in research
teams on technology. The technological component is absolutely crucial
in all this process. Innovation in technology at the intersection of
the arts and sciences allows not only for the establishment of a
common ground of understanding between artists and scientist but more
importantly it is a privileged vehicule to concretely implement change
in societies and economies. In other words, the main idea is to go
beyond the published paper by delivering in research projects
prototypes, business models and start-up companies.
