European Creative Industries Alliance

European Creative Industries Alliance

Through a competitive call, we were appointed by the European Commission as expert panel member for the Policy Learning Platform of the European Creative Industries Alliance. ECIA has been a consortium driven by Amsterdam Economic Board as coordinator, the Province of Milan, the Berlin Senate, the Catalan Institute for the Cultural Companies, the City of Tampere and Nantes Métropole/SAMOA. Its work was carried out from January 2012 to the end of 2014, and was organized into four main themes: access to finance, cluster excellence, creative spillovers and innovation vouchers.

The “Alliance” model was a new concept delivered by the European Commission to ensure stakeholder involvement in co-producing relevant cluster-based industrial policies. It is also about learning by doing. That is, promoting large-scale demonstrators looking for new ways of funding, promoting innovation… emphasizing the “how to do” rather than the “what to do”.
