How can science be inspired by art - and vice versa? What do researchers and artists have in common? How can they benefit from mutual dialogue? These are the questions being addressed by the Fraunhofer Network “Science, Art and Design”. Via a moderated structure, it seeks to promote interdisciplinary cooperation and the utilization of artistic methods for the discussion of complex social issues and the introduction of new perspectives into research processes.
Since October 2019, the Director of the Fraunhofer WKI, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bohumil Kasal, has been the Network's spokesman for the field of arts. His credo: “Artists and researchers are united by their imagination and their willingness to divert from well-trodden paths.”
