Objectives and goals of the project
The main objective of the project was to create a real and virtual network of hubs in the Alps, putting creativity and innovation at the centre and enabling to focus on specific issues and opportunities for local and transnational development. The project aimed at increasing the participation of Creative Industries in the socio-economical development of the area. Moreover the project connected and created collaboration between Creative Industries, SMEs and R&TD institutions, to promote scientific research and to build knowledge exchange and technology transfer tools, but still using a bottom up approach (typical in collaborative networks of creative industries).
- Virtual Platform (web 2.0) www.creativealpinespacenetwork.eu : where each national hub is connected with a transnational network. The platform contains interactive maps for the comprehension of the relationship between sectors of SMEs, creative companies, local institutions and universities. The platform is directly connected with existing national platforms.
- Events: dissemination activities through the strong relation with policy makers.
- Transnational meta-hubs: transnational maps of creative industries connected with SMEs, research centers and local institutions.
- Pilot projects: Creative Camp with involved CCIs, SMEs, local institutions and universities in a real project. Creative Camp included different activities: qualification, design and dissemination. The results were new services or new strategies for the hub and the transnational policy.
