Since 2016, when the initiative took shape, STARTS has organised, funded and monitored several residencies through different projects.
This has been the first STARTS project exploring this type of co-creative work, having provided knowledge exchange opportunities and encouraged cross-sector and crossborder collaboration in the field of sustainable fashion and smart wearables.
Between January 2017 and April 2019, the project funded a total of 46 exciting and diverse projects from across Europe.
In November 2016, STARTS launched a second project seeking to stimulate this type of collaborations. The 3-year project was fully dedicated to the funding and monitoring of science-tech-arts residencies, and has funded and successfully implemented a total of 45 residencies up to May 2020.
Duration: November 2016 – May 2020
