Casa Museu Egas Moniz, Avanca, Estarreja, Aveiro, Portugal.

Adaptation and resilience are characteristics of Aveiro, a city and region that has historically managed to adapt to adversities, by always positioning itself in forefront of the developments resulting from a healthy relationship between science, the arts and technologies to innovate. The invention of angiography by Egas Moniz is an excellent example of that. Today artistic creativity plays a fundamental role in digital innovation, in advanced industry and, in general, in the sustainability of productive practices. In this sense, the event will bring together scientists, industry, artists, companies, legislators, technologists, environmentalists and cultural organizations to rethink challenges for a green digital transition in Europe. In addition, the meeting aims to create a possible specific agenda for Portugal, in direct relationship with the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union and the European initiative S+T+ARTS, for a positive scientific knowledge based interaction between industry and the arts, contributing to the common good.
