Hey! My name is Veerle Spronck (📍Maastricht + Utrecht). I am a researcher at the intersection of art, science, and technology. I work as associate professor [associate lector] ‘Valuable Entrepreneurship in and through the Arts’ at the University of the Arts Utrecht. There I do research on the societal value(s) and impact of the arts.

Building on my interdisciplinary background in art history, science & technology studies, and artistic research, I conduct research that is ethnographic, creative, and practice-based, and thus preferably carried out in collaboration with artists, designers, musicians, artistic researchers, and cultural institutions who are trying to innovate their ways of working. The research methods I employ allow me to move along with and listen closely to the particular practice I engage with. Research does not always need to result in writing - sometimes making an exhibitiondrawing or developing études  simply fit better.

Next to my research, for one day a week, I teach within the School of Creative Transformation, where I coordinate the Minor Creative Research for Change. Furthermore, I am one of the makers of the podcast Kunstmatig about art and technology in which we discuss everything from BioArt to glitch knitting.
