The aim of TRANSDIGITAL is to set up a dynamic network between research centres, hi-tech enterprises and partners in the art field who take digital technology as their common ground.
The TRANSDIGITAL network is seeking to bring together the partners involved on a long-term structural footing to devise and implement three types of actions: seminars, workshops, and joint artistically-driven research projects that travel from metropolis to metropolis (Lille-Tourcoing, Mons/Maubeuge, Ghent) whilst involving players from across the entire Interreg Northern France-Wallonia-Flanders region.
Digital technology is firmly embedded in the three major conurbations of the Northern France, Wallonia and Flanders regions. These regions are home to a host of research centres and dozens of innovative hi-tech businesses. In a number of specific sectors, the ‘digital swerve’ has been pulled off to great success, but in spite of the strong presence of this digital spearhead, both in the world of research, the world of industry, and the sector of the arts, we are made to find there is still a long way to go in terms of networking and collaborative efforts within the regions in general, and especially between the three regions concerned.
