Technology platforms for cultural & arts creative expressions


To develop future generic platforms and tools for improving creative expression and facilitating access to inspirational material for artistic and cultural content creation. Applications include creative work in media production, cultural assets exploitation, artistic design, and contemporary arts and performance. Work will take advantage of, and develop technologies for virtual, augmented and mixed realities, new displays, and multi-sensory and multi-modal interfaces. Exploratory work will be positioned in the medium to long term with an emphasis on the discovery of novel ways to master traditional and new media, novel forms of creative and artistic expression, and novel forms of content, ultimately leading to a new «digital»expression.

Focus is on:

  • Developing generic technology platforms and tools to assist the cultural and artistic community in its creative process in a simple, interactive and intuitive manner and without imposing restrictions.
  • Benchmarking existing platforms, creating forums for the exchange of experience and networking centers of excellence where engineers and scientists work to support the artistic and cultural community,
  • Involving the scientific and technical community active in the development of new media tools and not traditionally related to the cultural and artistic area, as well as independent artists, young talents, cultural designers and creators,
  • Making available generic platforms and tools such as free / open source software and "open hardware" that can be easily used by artists, designers and creators for free and unlimited exploration.
