Abstract: We are proud to present you with a new, quite exceptional collection of articles bundled in this second CROSSTALKS publication. Some of the articles are loosely based, while others are directly based, on the discussions, insights and perspectives raised during the Brave New Interfaces workshop of 27 April 2006 in Brussels. The topic of exploring existing and future interfaces and their design emerged from numerous discussions on whether some spectacular technological innovations also meant or implied something more than just technological progress. Depending on the gender and the technological literacy of the conversationalists, the answer might be yes, no, or somewhere in between.
Another drive behind this publication was the need to find a common language to discuss all things interdisciplinary. Interdisciplinarity has been a major buzzword for a couple of years, but reality proves that different descriptions, meanings and implications are tagged to it. What exactly are we talking about? Everything can be labeled interdisciplinary in our culturally diverse and quickly changing world. So we gathered key people from the European design, architectural and technology-driven worlds to reflect on the meaning of working, thinking and acting in an interdisciplinary way and what the added value could be.

Abstract: People want to live longer and remain healthy. Through series of seminars, workshops and publications from 2005 to 2008, CROSSTALKS gave an incentive to a more integrated and more efficient health care, starting from the challenges to accessible and safe medicine for everybody.
Health is not a matter of politics only, health care is. Through a continuing process of exchange, CROSSTALKS wants to generate a growth model with added value for all the stakeholders in health care. A crucial factor in this project is the open collaboration and knowledge exchange between academics, the corporate world, doctors, pharmacists, patients, sickness funds, social partners and politicians.
