STARTS Prize is looking for innovative projects for its 2021 edition


    The STARTS yearly competition is back to award two innovative projects at the nexus of science, technology and the arts that have what it takes to make a significant impact on economic and social innovation. Winners will receive each €20.000.

    STARTS is an initiative of the European Commission to foster alliances of technology and artistic practice. As part of this initiative, the STARTS Prize awards the most pioneering collaborations and results in the field of creativity and innovation at the crossings of science and technology with the arts.

    Two prizes, each with €20.000 prize money, are offered to honour innovative projects at the intersection of science, technology and the arts. The emphasis of both prizes lies on the creative appropriation and employment of technologies as well as the search for unique constellations of collaboration from the STARTS fields.

    From 11 January to 03 March 2021, scientists, technologists, artists, institutions, labs and companies are invited once again to submit their best projects for the STARTS Prize 2021.
