STARTS Talk: S+T+ARTS: The Arts unleashing creativity across H2020

Hall 3, 20/09/2019 (13:15-13:55)

S+T+ARTS=STARTS, innovation at the nexus of Science, Technology, and the ARTS, is a program that attempts to bring in artistic creativity in the in research and innovation projects funded in H2020. The role of artists here can be manifold, pushing technological limits, reflecting on technology impact, or thinking of new forms of human-machine interaction. This session will elaborate on the various strands in the WP2020 that include STARTS activities: the CSA devoted to STARTS and STARTS prize in ICT-44 (next generation media),strong links to art in one area of DT-ICT-05-2020 (Big Data), and in particular the inclusion of art-technology hubs in the ‘cognitive systems’ subtopic of DT-ICT-03-2020 (I4MS).

What if citizens could build their cities from waste?Print Your City explores the concept of applying 3D printing to plastic waste, as a way to re-design urban space.

In the project Print Your City, urban dwellers transform their plastic waste into raw material for public space, creating a circular stream within the city. This is achieved by recycling household plastic waste with robotic-3d-printing and producing components that upgrade the built environment through citizen involvement and the principles of circular economy.

Discover prototypes of biomorphic sculptures based on 3D printed organs, that seem to be alive and growing.
The sculptures have a very haptic surface structure, shape and colours that automatically attract them to see closer, touch and feel.

A project developed by the design studio Valeria Abendroth in collaboration with 3D Prime platform.
