For the last three years, the MAST project has been connecting students, innovators, engineers, scientists and artists from across Europe to engage with methodologies and practices that intertwine the academic and cultural spheres, contributing to a better social and technological innovation. Next to a novel master study module, the project had a clearly transformative impact on the involved universities and NGOs by implementing progressive concepts and methodologies that integrate the European drive for breakthrough innovation with its Social Values agenda.
As the MAST project draws to a close, we are proud to present the main takeaways from our collaborative work, the lessons learned and the plans we are forging for the future. The MAST consortium believes that these results and outputs set solid foundations for further advancements and developments in the cross-domain field of Arts, Science and Technology.
Join us for a condensed two hours of sharp keynotes, experience reports and dynamic dialogues to learn more about the results of the MAST project, and perhaps share some of its future vectors.
