Data as Common Ground - Networking Event

News / Events / Past / Data as Common Ground - Networking Event
14 April. 2022 | 16:30 | Thinker Maker Space, Nicosia, Cyprus

In an era of ubiquitous data and technological progress, the growing cloud of information, tools and possibilities often overcasts dissonance rather than clarity. What are data, how are they sourced and disseminated, and how can they contribute towards societal and environmental welfare?

CYENS Centre of Excellence invites a diverse group of local technologists, industry, governmental and civil society representatives, as well as researchers, academics and invited artists, to unpack the power of data based on their practises and in relevance to the Cypriot context and realities. Special focus is drawn on issues of socio-environmental sustainability and equity, the role of different stakeholders and the dynamics of artistic practises as pillars in innovation and communication.

The presentations and discussions will be realised in two working sessions delving in understanding data as common ground and as agents of creativity, progress, and reformation of our present and future eco/techno systems. The event is organised by CYENS CoECYENS Thinker Maker Space & ITICA CYENS MRG and it is part of S+T+ARTS Residencies, S+T+ARTS Academy and S+T+ARTS Regional Centres.
 

FREE REGISTRATIONS

The talks and presentations during first day of the event are open to the public. Due to Covid restrictions, limited spaces are available. Therefore registration is required.
