T6 Ecosystems leading the assessment activities

STARTS EC(H)O, in which T6 Ecosystems is a consortium member, is now proud to announce the Open Call for the Residencies Program. The program offers artists the opportunity to work on 6 innovation areas, targeting 10 different challenges, bringing new perspectives to human-centred and sustainable projects, in the form of a work of art or a functional or speculative artistic prototype. 

S+T+ARTS is an initiative of the European Commission to foster alliances of technology, science and artistic practice, to nurture innovation and benefit the art world. As part of the S+T+ARTS initiative, STARTS EC(H)O, has the objective of building towards the triple transformation and developing artist-led approaches through creative experimentation and recognizing the most successful ones.

For 13 months, the STARTS EC(H)O project will support 10 residencies hosted in different institutions throughout Europe, centred on promoting the triple transformation: social, green and digital

The programme includes

  • A funding of 40.000€ per challenge;  
  • Guidance and support by the STARTS EC(H)O Residency Host Institutions;  
  • Access to experts;  
  • A kick-off meeting on-site at the Dresden University of Technology in December 2024;  
  • An incubation programme to support the residency teams in kick-starting the pilots and nurturing them to accelerate their impact;  
  • An impact assessment to evaluate the potential impact of scenarios and prototypes developed. 

As a long standing participant in the S+T+ARTS initiative and a consortium member in the STARTS EC(H)O, T6 Ecosystems is leading assessment activities. The research team of T6 is responsible for collecting the STARTS residency methodology and for encouraging and promoting the uptake of the results. Building on our previous experience of developing assessment frameworks and methodologies and in assessing the impact of innovative programs, T6 researchers will collect data using a mix-method approach, before conducting an assessment of the residencies and of their impact, of the pilot outcomes and of the framework conditions required to implement like-minded, cross-sectoral residency programs. T6 is also committed to disseminating the outcomes of this assessment in order to inform other innovation communities on successful S+T+ARTS practices and to provide recommendations to other relevant European communities on how to evolve such residencies.

Deadline: 30 June 2024
