This new EIT KIC will deliver innovative solutions to help the cultural and creative sectors and industries become stronger and more resilient by uniting cultural and creative organisations from business, higher organisations and research in a pan-European innovation ecosystem. This new community will train the sector’s future entrepreneurs, power its cutting-edge ventures, and deliver innovative solutions to the challenges facing the sectors. It would also bridge regional innovation gaps and harness the power of these sectors to support Europe’s cultural leadership.
