Funds for: creating or offering existing local infrastructures (buildings, institutions, etc.) 
Main beneficiaries: non-profit organisations, public authorities, universities

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* To create or offer existing local infrastructures (buildings, institutions etc.) or willing to fund collaborations of artists and technologists; 
* To help lay the ground to achieve the vision expressed by an art-technology framework for innovation in an urban or regional context

Priorities
* Networking and Policy framing;
* Seed activities

Among financed actions
* Networking and Policy framing
– Networking events of stakeholders in cities/regions already at the forefront of this movement and those starting activities in this area (local authorities and business, foundations etc.). Digital players should whenever possible be included;
– Mentoring activities (e.g. teaming up with investors, discussing possible support with local foundations, training in EC structural funding activities);
– Activities promoting the STARTS label;
– Links and synergies with related activities in the European Union
– Events and exhibition;
– Residencies of artists in technology institutions: fees, travel and daily allowance covering all needs;
* Seed activities
– Support and (ideally) raise/facilitate funding of STARTS residencies, i.e. residencies of artists in businesses/technology institutions or of engineers in artist ateliers that result in concrete outcomes in terms of processes or artefacts and by supporting exploitation of these results on a local level;
– Raise funds and attract sponsors to create exhibitions and installations that showcase innovation rooted in art-technology collaboration: e.g. artistic explorations of digital technology in context of urban development (for example artistic exploration of local mobility concepts, artist involvement in local business creations);
– Team up technology and the arts to make the digital more accessible to citizens in particular the young generation (digital skills and critical thinking) in the spirit of ‘STARTS academies’ that unite engineers and artists in teaching digital skills to citizens or motivate and enable them to appropriate digital technologies (e.g. use of data by and for citizens);
– Events and Exhibition;
– Residencies of artists in technology institutions: fees, travel and daily allowance covering all needs
