FET-ART Final Event – ICT & Art Connect so far: elements to orient the future

11-12 May 2014, Brussels

ICT & Art Connect sets out to bring together artists and technologists to explore new ways of working. Collaborative acts of co-creation, together with an open and multidisciplinary discussion will foster the blending of Art and Technology.

The coordination action FET-ART has played a crucial role in helping advance this initiative by a set of activities that allowed practitioners in technology and the Arts to meet, collaborate and discuss the future of such collaborations. The event will close the activities of the FET-ART project and present its major achievements and policy recommendations.

Launched in June 2013, FET-ART, in a few months, succeeded in organising several consultation and matchmaking events across Europe, and in supporting 18 residencies developing pilot projects centred on co-creation and citizen engagement in ICT. The projects developed through the residency programme will be presented in a show and tell exhibition curated by Black Cube Collective (BCC). FET-ART consortium is made of Sigma Orionis (coordinator), Brunel University, Stromatolite, Waag Society and Black Cube Collective. The event admission is free.

European Gender Medicine Network (EUGenMed) Kick-off conference

7 April 2014, Brussels

Research addressing Sex and Gender (S&G) in biomedical sciences and health research is a novel and highly promising field. Interaction of S&G related mechanisms leads to different manifestation of frequent diseases such as infarction, heart failure, diabetes, rheumatic disease in women and men. Research in this area will lead to novel, better targeted and therefore more efficient treatment strategies than the previous global approaches and will increase opportunities for prevention and healthy life expectancy.

The European Gender Medicine Project (EUGenMed) will produce an innovative roadmap for implementation of S&G in biomedicine and health research and create a European Gender Health Network. Research addressing Sex and Gender (S&G) in biomedical sciences and health research is a novel and highly promising field. Interaction of S&G related mechanisms leads to different manifestation of frequent diseases such as infarction, heart failure, diabetes, rheumatic disease in women and men.
