In April 2016, Ouest Industries Créatives launched its first call for scientific research projects. As a research, education and innovation programme, OIC’s focus is on developing scientific knowledge at the unexplored interfaces between the creative disciplines (design, fine arts) and research in the fields of human and social sciences, digital sciences and architecture.
One thesis and two start-up activities will be receiving funding. The successful applicants presented their projects on 21 September 2016 at a round table event: ‘Industries créatives : une recherche indisciplinée ?’* (*Creative industries – undisciplined research?)
