WE JOIN THE DOTS

We run projects that join the dots between arts and sciences, industry and academia, groundbreaking research and market adoption, creation of tools and hands-on invention.

We foster genuinely disruptive innovation of a kind that simply couldn’t happen without bringing together brilliant minds from a vast range of different backgrounds.

New knowledge from research that engages creative artists and maker-inventors. Forward-thinking policy that comes from a reappraisal of issues from previously unseen angles. Groundbreaking art that comes at the intersection of disciplines and meetings of minds. Revolutionary products that come about by putting top academic research into the hands of makers and creators. Rapid knowledge transfer and new languages for interaction that emerge from putting different kinds of creative and curious minds together in hands-on collaborative experimentation.

With our focus on creativity and transdisciplinarity, we provide both the context and the proven expertise that allows for the best science, the best art, the best policy, and the best products.
