Description of the Event:

This workshop will bring together researchers from different scientific areas to explore the bridge between classical knowledges, technology and art. A set of presentations will address  different aspects of  research areas that involve engineering and technology, as well as health, social sciencies and arts. Special guests from “Stefan cel Mare” University of Suceava , Neuroaesthetics Laboratory in Romania will give insights of the neurophysiological mechanisms involved in the creation and perception of art, based on quantitative science methods and qualitative humanities research.

The workshop will also have the participation of Prof. Luisa Lima, the leader of Iscte_Health iniciative and active researcher in the field of psychology and arts will present the way Arts can potentially impact both mental and physical health.
