Cluster Contact Point

Published Date
CREATIVE CITIES' objective is to exploit creative industry potentials for more competitive and attractive cities.
Five Central European cities (Gdansk, Genoa, Leipzig, Ljubljana, Pecs) joined to:
  • improve framework conditions and to initialise creative industry clusters,
  • promote entrepreneurial skills and competitiveness of creative industries,
  • improve creative industry external visibility through transnational marketing and networking,
  • exploit potentials in the development of decayed urban areas through the allocation of creative industries in those city districts.
Furthermore, all project partners will provide valuable input to policy debates (anticipated Green Paper on Cultural and Creative Industries) and recommendations for other cities aiming to promote their creative industry potentials. Besides, transnational cooperation between five comparable Central European cities and close cooperation with EUROCITIES will be also important.
The project will be promoted by five cities - public authorities, which have the political competences to integrate project results into local plans and strategies.

  • Establishment, institutionalisation and transnational networking of creative industry clusters
  • Elaboration and testing of transnational cluster marketing tools
  • Promotion of creative clusters’ competitiveness based on European good practices
  • Elaboration of recommendations for other cities (close cooperation with EUROCITIES)
  • Contributions to policy debates (anticipated Green Paper on Cultural and Creative Industries)

  • Contribution to Green Paper on Cultural and Creative Industries
  • Institutionalised clusters of creative industries and durable transnational networks
  • Joint Action Plan for promotion of creative industries
  • Qualified cluster contact points
  • Tested and endorsed cluster marketing programmes
  • Transnational study on urban location factors of creative industry enterprises
  • Recommendations for other cities on “creative” district development (EUROCITIES)
