The worldwide emergence of increasingly complex challenges requires creative solutions that draw on multiple disciplines. This includes interactions with technology, the perceptually accessible world, and collective versus individual knowledge and processes.
The Off The Lip 2018 event will draw on experiences and outcomes from multiple disciplinary initiatives, to explore the value and impact of innovative and interdisciplinary collaborations. This event, comprising a symposium embedded in the Cognition Institute Conference at the University of Plymouth and a subsequent two-day workshop, will promote the growth and development of individual projects, innovative collaborations, and the wider interdisciplinary community.
Keynotes are given by Angelo Cangelosi (University of Plymouth), Sophia Lycouris (University of Edinburgh) and Joanna Rączaszek-Leonardi (University of Warsaw). Researchers from across the country have been accepted to present their results and performances at this interdisciplinary events. This fourth instance of an annual event is organised by CogNovo* research fellows.

* CogNovo was an Innovative Doctoral Programme, funded by the EU Marie Curie initiative and the University, to foster research training in the emerging field of Cognitive Innovation. CogNovo ran between 2013 and 2017 at the University to offer transdisciplinary training combining scientific studies of the neural correlates and mechanisms of creativity, with investigations into the role of creativity in human cognition, and their application in sustainable technological and social innovation.
