Creative Ports Partner Meeting 08-10 October 2019

16.10.2019 |

The Interreg funded project Creative Ports, with its lead partner Goethe-Institut and 13 further partners from 8 countries, continues its work on the internationalisation of the CCI -culture and creative industries- sector in the Baltic Sea Region. A partner meeting took place from 8-10 October 2019 in Malmö at one of the partners: Media Evolution.

Creative Ports aims at empowering CCI intermediaries in the BSR to facilitate transnational cooperation to benefit the CCI players at large. The project does this by testing internationalisation tools (such as fairs or workshops) and consequently developing learning modules derived from the testing. The learning modules will then be provided online.

It was a big hello at the meeting, a pleasure to see each other again and excitement to work together towards the success of the project. Topics of the meeting were diverse as such, but with the plan to go into the concrete testing phase. Best practice examples on CCI strategies were presented as well as suggestions on how to create fruitful cooperation through a “tandem”.  A tandem brings together two types of organisations: internationally working institutes and local CCI support organisations, with the overall aim of internationalisation.

The different internationalisation tools suggested by the partners are now in the realisation phase, meaning, the partners interested in participating will get in touch with the partners providing the tools. The decision, which tools to test will be finalised by the end of October. The testing of the tools will take place throughout 2020. During and after the process, the learning modules will be developed. The goal is to create proper guidelines so that everyone can follow step by step, how to use a specific tool to go international.

Creative Ports runs from September 2018 to August 2021. It is an Interreg BSR funded project and a EUSBSR PA Culture flagship.
