Thanks to its network and financial support, the ArtTech Foundation aims to foster innovative partnerships by using advanced technology. In this context, projects have already been developed together by start-ups and cultural institutions:
The Institute of Archeology of the University of Lausanne is currently developing an international project integrating start-ups and more mature companies such as Iconem. Integrating a rich collection of mid-20th century archeological photographs, the aim is to build a 3D model of the recently destroyed Baalshamîn sanctuary in Palmyra, and to use new technologies to inform researchers and the public about this lost heritage. An exhibition will be organized in October 2021 at EPFL Pavilions.
NoMadMusic, the 2018 ArtTech Prize Winner, was put in contact and is developing now business partnerships with key cultural institutions in the Lake Geneva region. Other start-ups also benefit from the ArtTech Foundation support and network such as Theoriz studio or Seezart.
The ArtTech Investment Fund is also under discussion in association with the Foundation. It will provide a basis for the creation of new enterprises and will be launched in 2022.
