From the Preface:
“Multidisciplinarity is in fact a fundamental element in the spirit of the Marconi Institute for Creativity (MIC), founded in 2011 at the joint initiative of Fondazione Guglielmo Marconi and University of Bologna, with the specific aim of contribut- ing to the establishment of the science of creative thinking and its divulgation in educational and research milieus. Working on this book with the support of the CREAM European Project, funded by the European Commission FP7 Programme, we selected the chapters to be the expanded forms of the best papers presented at the MIC Conference 2013.“
