EASTN

EASTN-DC Countries

English version

The EASTN-DC project builds on the strength of a long-standing European partnership.

The aim is to extend it considerably in terms of consortium, objectives, means of action and impact, in order to establish a European network on a sustainable basis on the theme of digital creativity by combining artistic dimensions, scientific and technological, pedagogical, dissemination and valorisation.
The construction of the EASTN-DC consortium and actions focuses on :

  1. Agile collaboration between the 5 clusters : Research - Creation - Pedagogy - Sharing - Economy ;
  2. The three "hot issues" of re-tangibility, formats, and technology-philia-phobia.


EASTN-DC Partners

EASTN-DC brings together 17 partners, including 14 from 10 European countries and 3 from countries outside Europe.
The partners were chosen by the EASTN-DC network for their complementarity in relation to :

The "Communication" (Act.3) and the "Coordination" are the permanent activities that support them.

English version

The EASTN-DC project proposes to work in the study and experimentation, in full size, of the processes at the borders of the 5 Research - Creation - Pedagogy - Sharing - Economy poles.
Thus, it is not a question of developing research activities per se, or of creating activities for itself. For example, a creative activity will question or test its link with research, and/or its link with pedagogy, etc. EASTN-DC will work towards the development of these cross-border approaches, with a view to their formalization as a model until they become a culture.
The idea is to experience the means of a rapid, agile, constant collaboration between the five poles according to the concrete actions in which they will be systematically combined.
