On October 2, the first multiplier event of CreatINNES “Entrepreneurship and Creativity – One Plus One Is More Than Two” was kicked-off as an international open seminar. It was organized by three organizations – our Hungarian partner Teleberry , Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Central European University Innovation Lab 2019, at the CEU Nádor Street building.
The purpose of the event was to enhance dialogue between creative and cultural industries, digital technology companies and financial investors, and to foster entrepreneurial skills in the creative and cultural industries. Accordingly, the target audience of the event were primarily companies and young freelancers working in the creative and cultural industries, CCI students, and representatives of technology businesses that value creativity.
In September 2018, six European organizations from Germany, Bulgaria, France, Macedonia and Hungary got together in Darmstadt and kicked off a three year (2018-2021) project named Strategic Partnership for Innovation and Business Skills Development in Cultural and Creative Industries Sector –CreatINNES. It is a European project funded by ERASMUS+ funding scheme 2018 – 2021. INI-Novation GmbH is the project coordinator.
We are dedicated to the project collaborating in a strategic partnership to respond to the education and support needs of Creative and Cultural Industries. Our mission is to bring creativity and business together with the goal to boost innovation and growth of the economy in our regions. We believe in creativity as a shield against ordinariness feeding innovation. Therefore, CreatINNES provides support for CCI start-ups and freelancers via innovative training programmes based on knowledge co-creation and cross-sectoral collaboration.
At the end of September 2018, the German coordinator INI-Novation GmbH invited all CreatINNES partner to kick-off the project in the Technology Innovation Center in Darmstadt. In every project this is a crucial moment for the future teaming. Long working sessions, jointly discussed and decided activities, and inspired smiles at the end of the meeting – first nice results are already achieved.
