Finance, Learning, Innovation and Patenting for Cultural and Creative Industries
Fulfilling a crucial task for the overall economy and society, cultural and creative industries (CCIs) still face considerable barriers that limit cultural entrepreneurship. With this European funded project IDEA Consult and its European consortium partners Goethe Institute (lead partner), European Creative Hubs Network ,VVA, 3S and IPIL support the development of more healthy and sustainable ecosystems related to Finance, Learning, Innovation and Patenting for Cultural and Creative Industries through capacity building and exchange.
In order to strengthen CCI’s capacities for growth and development through improved access to finance, value recognition, and capacities to capture value from IP for actors in the CCI, the consortium carries out research, consulting and guidelines testing activities to improve the finance and patenting ecosystem.
In order to achieve the cross-sectorial benefits of the CCIs, the development of cultural and creative skills for CCIs will be put in the European context of competences, qualifications and occupations, in order to develop models for identifying and addressing skills mismatches and to finally connect CCIs with other sectors by demonstrating the transversal relevance of skills and expertise related to creative thinking. Simultaneously, support structures for the CCI’s are strengthened by mutual learning between Creative Hubs and between support structures and formal and informal education.
