What Is the Evidence That Art-Science-Technology Collaboration Is a Good Thing?

What is it about?

The subject of integrating arts, design and the humanities into the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and math), often referred to as “STEM to STEAM” in the U.S.A., has gained traction.

Why is it important?

The intersections among Science, Art and Humanities disciplines can contribute significant advances for sustainable agriculture, transportation and telecommunication technologies, create novel educational practice, humanize medicine and scientific practices (or approaches), promote new expert insights about human brain functions and foster peace in real-world conflict zones.

Perspectives

We see growing evidence that such practices, through a variety of methodologies, contribute to a healthier development of our societies.
