I am excited about giving a talk at the upcoming "Transfer Summit 2021" on the topic of "OPEN ARTS“ where I will present 3 of my projects. On the one hand I will showcase both FWF funded projects "Art4Science" (FWF WKP 132) about Art & Science within Cancer Research (more about the project here ) and "Demedarts" (FWF AR-609) on the subject of Arts & Dementia (read more about it here). On the other hand I present an interdisciplinary project in cooperation with the WU Vienna (building start-ups in the energy industry via art/design). I am already looking forward to the summit, many exciting ideas and a lively exchange! Find below some more details on the summit and make sure to visit their website within the next couple of days.
