Online Workshop of the Cultural and Creative Regional Ecosystems (CCRE-S3) partnership

General Information

Online Workshop – “Cultural and Creative Regional Ecosystems (CCRE-S3)” organised in the framework of the 18th European Week of Regions and Cities

Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI), through the use of new technologies, may contribute to innovation and job creation and provide sustainable solutions to peripheral territories, making them more attractive for economic activity.

Cultural and Creative Regional Ecosystems (CCRE-S3) is a newly supported thematic area under the S3 Platform for Industrial Modernisation. It aims to stimulate new insights and opportunities related to cultural and creative experiences for local communities and residents, through public-private investments involving related groups of professions that use, apply and implement new technologies for the sector. 

CCRE-S3 is the result of collaboration in the field of CCI between three active member regions of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR), namely Aragon (ES), Tuscany (IT) and Western Greece (EL).

The workshop will use the example of the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR) as an area with different territorial challenges and great potential for the CCI sector and as a way of bringing macro-regional strategies closer to smart specialisation strategies to make their partners think innovatively. Furthermore, special emphasis will be put on the role that CCI could have in the post-crisis recovery from the COVID-19 outbreak and updated priorities for the short- mid- and long-term future.

The experience of Rijeka (HR), European Capital of Culture 2020, will also be presented during the workshop.

The event will close with a debate involving the panel of experts and the audience.
