As a closing event of  BOZAR and JRC’s Datami exhibition, Culture Action Europe, BOZAR LAB and JRC are jointly organising a meeting with experts on Arts, Science and Technology research to further debate the challenges of creating a common field for transdisciplinary research. In this intersection between diverse domains, methodologies and contexts, putting different perspectives in dialogue is crucial. As a starting point to tackle these issues, this meeting invites the participants to have a bird’s eye view over other paradigma, replacing standard bodies of inherited knowledge and methodologies with atypical practices coming from the artistic field, to identify together the open doors for AST transdisciplinary research, the main obstacles and the ways to address them.
