International expertise in fashion and technology
Re-FREAM is a pillar of the STARTS Programme (Science + Technology + Arts), an initiative of the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
The project involved an international consortium of experienced partners regarding technology, research, fashion, and design, as well as art-tech transfer expertise.
In total, 20 projects by European artists and designers were awarded within the two calls for applications and received a grant of 55,000 Euros each.
The received applications were screened by a group of experts and then evaluated by an international jury, who awarded ten artists per call.
All together formed a self-running and sustainable innovation community with artists and technologists, who openly share their research results and experiences in the field of fashion and technology.
