About S+T+ARTS Prize

Science, Technology and the Arts (STARTS for short) is a European Commissioned initiative that supports the collaboration between the three disciplines. By handing out two yearly STARTS Prizes, the aim is to foster innovation in order to tackle economic, social and technological challenges that face today’s Europe. Waag is one of its consortium partners next to Ars Electronica and Bozar Brussels, amongst others.



By collaborating with artists, technology partners and manufacturers, the European consortium project VOJEXT addresses human-robot interaction that contributes to today’s societal and also environmental challenges. This project is part of STARTS.
