+ Research Project: Identifying successful STARTS methodologies MORE

In early 2019, an interdisciplinary team of researchers from the University of Wolverhampton, led by Denise Doyle, was awarded funds to join the STARTS Prize initiative co-ordinated by Ars Electronica on behalf of the European Commission. The team has conducted research into the Winners and Honorary Mentions of the STARTS Prize to see how collaborations succeed, with the aim to further understand how successful projects engage across Science, Arts, and Technology, and the ways in which this can be used effectively to address issues outlined by Horizon 2020 (sustainability, innovation, education, inclusion).
