News­flash #8: Project “InduC­CI” — Time to say goodbye

The last month of the “InduC­CI” project has begun. Already before the turn of the year, a large part of our work pack­age on “Influ­enc­ing region­al strate­gic frames for fos­ter­ing CCI in indus­tri­al regions” was com­plet­ed. Below you will find an overview of the last project steps: 

Transna­tion­al and region­al strat­e­gy papers

While some project part­ners already pre­sent­ed their region­al NPP strat­e­gy papers to impor­tant deci­sion-mak­ers in their respec­tive regions in the pre­vi­ous year, oth­ers still had this task ahead of them in 2022. In this con­text, our transna­tion­al CCI strat­e­gy paper “Wis­dom of Place” was pre­sent­ed by Christof Schreck­en­berg (Cre­ative Tide, Cologne) at a vir­tu­al meet­ing on 7 March 2022. After a short pre­sen­ta­tion of the 14 rec­om­men­da­tions for the pro­mo­tion of cul­tur­al and cre­ative indus­tries in indus­tri­al regions at Euro­pean lev­el, the invit­ed guests, impor­tant deci­sion-mak­ers from the region, had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to ask ques­tions and talk to us. We are pleased that the con­tents of the strat­e­gy paper have found res­o­nance and are offi­cial­ly tak­en into account in the respec­tive region­al insti­tu­tions. The region­al CCI strat­e­gy papers as well as the transna­tion­al CCI strat­e­gy paper will be avail­able on the “InduC­CI” web­site as an “out­put doc­u­ment”.  


To make the results of more than two years of “InduC­CI” vis­i­ble, we have devel­oped a tool­box over the past six months. The final ver­sion is now avail­able to inter­est­ed users. It sum­maris­es approach­es to bring­ing Cul­tur­al and Cre­ative Indus­tries togeth­er with indus­try and soci­ety in indus­tri­al regions. We have pre­pared project results in a prac­ti­cal way. The e‑toolbox con­tains best prac­tice pro­files from the “InduC­CI” regions, as well as tips on how to cre­ate a com­pe­tence train­ing for admin­is­tra­tive staff on the top­ic of Cul­tur­al and Cre­ative Indus­tries, and includes for­mats from the cre­ative indus­tries. Feel free to click through the e‑Toolbox!

Final con­fer­ence in Belgium

On 24 March, the hybrid final con­fer­ence of the “InduC­CI” project “More than colour into grey” will take place. Under the name “The Role of Cul­tur­al and Cre­ative Econ­o­my in Trans­form­ing Indus­tri­al Regions” there will be video pre­sen­ta­tions, excit­ing pan­el dis­cus­sions and keynotes with the InduC­CI project part­ners, as well as Tami War­shavs­ki, Bernd Fes­el, Fab­rizio Panoz­zo, Jana Bělo­houbková, Michal Hlad­ky and oth­er inter­na­tion­al guests. 

The cen­tral learn­ings of the InduC­CI project will also be made avail­able to a broad audi­ence vir­tu­al­ly. For the pro­gramme & reg­is­tra­tion go here.  

MArte Live Con­test Festival

We would like to draw your atten­tion to a call for appli­ca­tions with­in the frame­work of the EU pro­gramme Cre­ative Europe. Emerg­ing artists under the age of 35 can apply to the MArte­Live Europe pro­gramme for online and livestream audi­tions until 31 March 2022. The com­pe­ti­tion fes­ti­val gives emerg­ing Euro­pean artists the oppor­tu­ni­ty to show­case their tal­ent, win prizes and net­work with oth­er artists and top pro­fes­sion­als. Par­tic­i­pants will be judged by a qual­i­fied jury and the audi­ence. We would be delight­ed if you would share this call for entries with your net­work. You can find more infor­ma­tion here and here


We would like to say good­bye to you and thank you for fol­low­ing us and the “InduC­CI” project
