Description

What Does it Take? Science, Art, Wonder

Can you see a future where artists, scientists and business work together to find creative solutions to big problems? It may exist in fragile ecosystems but how can it be sustained?

Considering the innovations that Leonardo da Vinci was dreaming up hundreds of years ago, what conditions are required for great ideas to be drawn up for the 21st Century?

Patronage was an important catalyst for the Renaissance. What is the role of business and universities in the 21 Century? How can we revision and resource the creative research ecosystem?
