Organized by the Art Researches Science (ARS) program, the Biological and Medical Art in Belgium group (BIOMAB) and the European Medical Students' Association (EMSA) of Antwerp, this meeting offers a meaningful exchange among scientists, artists, and medical artists teaching Art and Science to a new generation of students, encouraging open discussions between scientists and artists and the opportunity for a real dialogue about experiences and visions central to their work.
