Call to submit information on CCI cross-sectoral innovation projects

22.06.2020 |

In order to identify the needs of cultural and creative industries’ actors who are working cross-sectorally across the Northern Dimension (ND) countries (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russian Federation and Sweden) and to be able to plan necessary future interventions, the Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture (NDPC) has launched a mapping project "CCI Cross-sectoral Cooperation and Innovation in the Northern Dimension Region".

In the context of this project ‘cross innovation’ refers to a process by which CCIs share information, collaborate and work with other growth sectors to promote new thinking as well as innovative products, services and activities. The focus will be on ‘cross innovation’ between the CCI sector and the digital, economic, environmental, social and education sectors.

To enrich the ‘cross-innovation’ mapping component, the project will include a process of researching inspiring country case studies and the holding of three thematic workshops (in Norway, Poland and the Russian Federation). Finally policy and related research will seek to identify future CCI inter-sectoral ‘cross innovation’ potential and international opportunities related to the Northern Dimension countries.

At the current stage of the project, CCI cross-sectoral innovation project actors are invited to submit information on their projects implemented in the ND area. The project team is interested in initiatives with proven impact, as well as in such projects and activities that have failed or faced problems. The information can be submitted by filling out this short form in English or Russian, whether by project owners themselves or any other person who is aware of cross-sectoral initiatives happening in the ND area. All contributions will be used as part of creating a bigger picture of CCI cross-sectoral innovation projects in the Northern Dimension countries. Some will be included as examples in a published report. 

‘’CCI Cross-sectoral Cooperation and Innovation in the Northern Dimension Region’’ is a European Commission project with the Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture (NDPC) as the beneficiary. It will run from March 2020 to January 2021.
