Contaminations between Arts, Science, Technology: new pathways of innovation

STARTS TalkNovember 13 20204 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

How do artists and creatives contribute to the innovation of research and processes in the scientific and technological fields? What models of collaboration can we put in place to encourage new opportunities for dialogue between the cultural and technological industries?

As part of the Regional STARTS Centers, Nesta Italia, with the contribution of CRT Foundation, organizes an online meeting dedicated to exploring successful local and international collaborative experiences between traditionally separate sectors, which are rediscovering a common working ground capable of generating new forms of entrepreneurship, developing skills and entire territories with a view to sustainability.

During the talk – preceded by the interventions of Marco Zappalorto (CEO, Nesta Italia) and Massimo Lapucci (General Secretary, CRT Foundation and General Manager, OGR Torino) – will intervene speakers of international level, with different backgrounds from design to science: Giulia Tomasello (Interaction Designer , winner of S + T + ARTS Prize 2018), Erica Villa (Head of Programming, Science Gallery Venice), Prof. Mario Rasetti (ISI Foundation President), Jasmina Tesanovic (Writer, Filmmaker and Activist).

The meeting is aimed at professionals in the technology sector (companies, startups), science (research centers, universities), cultural managers and art curators, professionals and researchers in the humanities, in particular art, design, architecture.
