A brand-new pilot project by the European Commission sets out to establish platforms for cultural content innovation. The project wants to incentivise European content industries to nurture and embrace innovation so they can sustain their position as creative pioneers in the digital era.

A main goal is to bring together players from different content industries, and instil a mind-set of innovation and collaboration through the sharing of experiences, data and knowledge.

Through the pilot project the commission wants to test and develop new approaches and business models for content creation, distribution and promotion, taking advantage of digital technologies and taking into account new audience patterns and behaviours.

The development of platform(s) for cultural content innovation should:

  • bring European added value by strengthening the collaboration among players in the content industries and incentivising them to adapt new approaches, services, products and business models,
  • act as a catalyser of creativity and an accelerator of innovation for the content industries and instil an innovative mind-set among the users,
  • be of high quality standards, well curated, promoted and highly interactive,
  • share experience, data and knowledge on any other element that could contribute to innovation and improve the growth and competitiveness of the European content industries,
  • facilitate and reinforces cross-sectoral collaboration in relation to issues such as creation, distribution, promotion and access to content
  • reach out to a wide and participative community beyond its members,
  • reach out to and collaborates with tech industries.

 

The action will be implemented by way of a call for proposals with a maximum aid intensity of 60% of the total eligible costs of the project(s).
