The Bassetti Foundation published a podcast and video interview with In4Art on Art in Responsible Innovation
Published On: April 9, 2021
In4Art’s founders have been interviewed by Jonathan Hankins, Foreign Scientific Correspondent of the Bassetti Foundation, on why In4Art links art and responsible innovation and how we do this through Art-Driven Innovation.
It is an interesting first familiarisation with The Bassetti Foundation, that is a respectable, influencing institute enabling responsible innovation. Fomr their website:
The foundation’s aim is to promote responsibility in innovation within both the national and international setting, helping institutional, private and associational actors to orient their aims and goals, in considering them a factor of interest for the entire society; both in the techno-scientific field and regarding governance models.
Hankins referred to the work of In4Art as a very thought-provoking project an in the interview, they talk about the coming to existence of In4Art, how the idea of Art-Driven Innovation was developed and what underpins it, referring to the aims of innovation, questioning its position within the EU ecosystem. It talks about what drives innovators and how creativity and art can be (is) influential. Of course, it positions the narrative within the scope of responsible innovation and how the method of Art-Driven Innovation is publicly shared through its own web interface.
S+T+ARTS is about thinking out of the box and building bridges between Science, Technology and Arts.
STARTS is an initiative of the European Commission to foster alliances of science, technology, and the arts, that effectively implement a European approach to technological innovation centered on human needs and values.
Science, Technology and Arts form a nexus with an extraordinarily high potential for creative and reflective innovation.And such innovation is considered to be precisely what is called for to master the social, ecological and economic challenges that Europe is facing.
With disruptive methods of exploration and an accurate critical eye on the use of technology, artists decisively raise awareness of the societal challenges and global concerns we are tackling. The artistic practices are seen as innovative processes and have a wide-reaching potential to contribute to the development of new economic, social and business models.
