Project Details

Description

ABRA (Artificial Biology, Robotics and Art)
https://www.abra-hub.net/

The starting point for ABRA (Artificial Biology, Robotics and Art) is the recognition of the need to develop a transdisciplinary curriculum and training that keeps pace with scientific research and emerging technologies (artificial biology, robotics, artificial intelligence, material sciences, etc.) The consortium believes that the most pressing problems facing human societies will require creative and innovative solutions from experts working jointly across the fields of science, technology, art, design and culture. ABRA is an exploratory project designed to promote knowledge alliances across the diverse research fields in the context of sustainability. The project explicitly promotes transdisciplinary knowledge in higher education that bridge the arts and sciences for enhanced sustainability, specialising in the fields of artificial biology, robotics, and art. ABRA facilitates the exchange of sustainable best practices that foster creativity and innovation while developing a shared language that prepares students and teachers to tackle complex problems and solutions relevant for the twenty-first century.
