Science Art Technology Network (SATnet)
SATnet was a knowledge transfer project funded under the Academia for Business (A4B) scheme. The A4B Fund was managed by the Welsh Assembly Government’s Department for Economy and Transport and was financed by the Welsh Assembly Government and the European Union.
SATnet facilitated the interaction between Swansea Metropolitan University (now UWTSD) based academics and Welsh companies that work in the visual arts, the science and technology sectors.
By fusing together these traditionally polar disciplines, SATnet not only created new partnerships but also helped develop potential new products and processes that boost the Welsh economy.
SATnet's activities included:
Establishing creative exchanges between SMU and Welsh businesses.
Organising and delivering network meetings and events.
Promoting interaction between the creative arts and the sciences.
