    Artist Residencies for Innovation: Development of a Global Framework



    The STARTS Residencies European program aims to involve artists in high-tech environments, establishing a global framework for residencies and 45 projects. We look at its impact, providing the first study on this large-scale action. The initiative’s methodology and tools will be released for companies and institutions in 2019.
