Can we measure creativity? How can we decode the creative process?
These are some of the questions that the Decoding European Creative Skills project has proposed to generate a system that allows decoding the competences of creative profiles.
Ferran Adrià will talk about the creative process and the project team will share the first conclusions of this ambitious research. This project arises from the collaboration with Ferran Adrià and has been co-funded by the European Creative program of the European Union led by Elisava, together with the Eindhoven University of Technology and the University of Applied Sciences Fachhochschule of Salzburg and the collaboration of Domestic Data Streamers.
