What do jackets made of orange peel, parasites for smart home devices and the monitoring of our oceans have in common? That’s right! They all characterize the enormous thematic scope of the S+T+ARTS Prize.
The European Commission’s S+T+ARTS Prize is going into the next round! This is the eighth time that Ars Electronica and its consortium partners Bozar, Waag, INOVA+, T6 Ecosystems, French Tech Grande Provence and the Frankfurt Book Fair have announced this prestigious European Commission prize. Two prizes, the Grand Prize – Innovative Collaboration and the Grand Prize – Artistic Exploration, each endowed with €20,000, will be awarded to innovative projects at the interface of science, technology and art. The focus of both prizes is on innovative collaboration between industry or technology and the artistic field, as well as artistic research and works that have great potential to influence or change the perception of technology.
From applications for the safe use of smart home devices to the innovative, resource-saving use of waste – the variety of topics covered by the projects already submitted in recent years is enormous. The international jury of experts is looking forward to receiving submissions from a wide range of fields and disciplines. Among others, projects from the fields of new media applications, human computer interaction, machine learning, biotechnology, art & research, environmental technology, materials research, smart cities, citizen participation and empowerment, robotics, quantum technology and many more are cordially invited for submission. For your inspiration, you will find below a small excerpt from the topics of the last years and the corresponding winning projects.
