From smart phones to automobiles, understanding the human genome to exploring social networks, scientific and technological innovation is the result of the work of not just scientists and engineers, but artists and designers as well. The challenges of the 21st century demand creative processes that stem from the realization that design, aesthetic, and technological development have become symbiotic. In order to foster this kind of transdisciplinary research, the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) invites applications for small projects that are creative, innovative and show a strong potential for contribution toward the goals of ICAT. These funds can be used to pursue a range of transdisciplinary activities including creative projects, pilot studies, feasibility studies, or preliminary research. It is expected that the projects funded by the SEAD grants will help catalyze larger projects (with possibilities for future funding), long term initiatives, or one-time events, performances and exhibitions that are visible at the national level.
