Science and Society
To introduce new insights into science and make them more available for the public, collaboration with Konstfack, the Swedish University College of Arts, Crafts, and Design was initiated by participants* on the CMM leadership course 2010. Contacts were established with Professors Ronald Jones and Rolf Hughes from the Experience Design Group and after several brain storming sessions two ideas were born. One idea was to create a common research course, “Innovative Thinking: Science meets Art”, to be held at both KI and Konstfack and the second was build up a gallery. To raise the awareness of ongoing work, we wish to exhibit artworks at the gallery from the researchers at CMM.

CMM invites all CMM researchers to display their art works, which can be anything from images captured on a microscope, gels, schematic drawings to photographs and paintings of scientific/artistic value. E-mail your files to: Margarita.Diez@ki.se or Taha.Hirbod@ki.se or Maja.Jagodic@ki.se.
Course: Innovative Thinking: Science meets Art
CMM has initiated collaboration with the Experience Design Group at Konstfack, the Swedish University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, with the goal to promote interdisciplinary thinking and to facilitate communication of science to the public. At present, we are developing a research course, “Innovative Thinking: Science meets Art”, which will be held at Konstfack/KI starting from autumn 2010. This course will gather students from different disciplines to promote exchange of perspectives and ideas. The common goal is to develop and visualize innovative approaches to address health problems. More information will come shortly.
The idea originated at the CMM leadership course 2010.
