Connecting ICT and Art communities: new research avenues, challenges, and expected impact (FET-ART)
Start date: Jun 1, 2013, End date: May 31, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The FET-ART project stems from the "ICT & ART Connect" event that took place in Brussels in April 2012 under the aegis of the FET Unit, with an important support and contribution of several FET-ART partners.This event clearly confirmed that a great potential exists in fostering dialogue between ICT and Art practitioners, and this is the right time to efficiently support such dialogue in order to contribute to the emergence of novel FET research topics and the identification of new emerging research areas for H2020 in the ICT domain and beyond.Within this context, a FET-ART balanced partnership of committed organisations has been formed, offering renowned expertise in the ICT and Art domains, important connections with ICT and Art practitioners in Europe and worldwide, many references at the ICT and Art interface, and longstanding experience of planned activities.The FET-ART consortium will, over the 12-month project period, connect the European ICT and Art communities, and foster productive dialogue and collaborative work between them, in order to identify new research avenues, associated challenges, and the potential impact of ICT and Art collaboration on science, technology, art, education and society in general.FET-ART will more precisely:•\tOrganise "consultation events and matchmaking events" in at least five European locations,•\tSupport at least 15 "pilot projects" of collaborative work between ICT and Art practitioners in residencies, seen as "proofs of concept" for some promising research topics or directions, particularly "co-creation" and "citizen engagement in ICT",•\tOrganise a final open event in Brussels, part of an ambitious set of project outreach activities: web platform, community building, contribution to events, including to ICT 2013 and to the next edition of the "ICT & ART Connect" event which the project will support.In order to ensure some coherence to the external perception of the activities developed under the aegis of DG Connect and aiming at connecting ICT & Art communities, the project will be officially presented to external stakeholders as "The ICT & Art Connect initiative (developed through the FET-ART project supported by the European Commission)."
