The MAST consortium
The MAST consortium combines a host of hi-profile institutions with excellent references across the sci-art-tech triangle, and some truly remarkable individuals — a mix that should attract the best student candidates and provide most meaningful and ambitious solutions to the MAST challenge! Partner roles in the MAST consortium typically combine academic, managerial and professional (business) profiles with two institutions of big outreach capacity, as well as several topically relevant associate partners:
MANAGERIAL/LEAD | University of Nova Gorica, School of Arts (Slovenia)
ACADEMIC, R&D | Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (Portugal) | Graz University of Technology, Institute of Spatial Design (Austria)
ENTREPRENEURIAL & PRODUCTION | Kersnikova Institute (Slovenia) | Kitchen Budapest (Hungary)
NETWORKING & OUTREACH | Culture Action Europe (Belgium/EU) | Croatian Cultural Alliance / Unicult programme (Croatia)

The MAST Consortium combines institutions that provide art education and training in most diverse ways and environments. Together with the Associate partners of the MAST project they shall contribute to both the advancement of business and education, while maintaining the tension that art and commerce have always had. The MAST consortium does not plan to ignore this tension, but rather to address it fully, which includes not only teaching business culture, but more broadly organizational techniques, which may be expressed in many forms. In particular, MAST will seek to explore the ways that art, science, and technology crossover may be socially impactful in a variety of enterprise organizational forms, including business, non-profit, free/open software, platform collaborative, and others.
