The Culture and Creative Industry (CCI) sector lacks a transnational and cross-sectoral shared vision on what could be its contribution to economic and social growth in central Europe. This goes along with a lack of capacities in CCI for linking up with other industry sectors to foster innovation processes.  

The COCO4CCI project will build capacities for cross-sectoral cooperation in advanced manufacturing (AVM), by creating a transnational CCI collider network. Based on a mapping of CCI potentials and a roadmap, COCO4CCI will develop the collider concept, in which CCI hubs and business support organisations work in tandem, complementing each other with knowledge and experiences from its sector. 

COCO4CCI will train facilitators who will implement an extensive online and face-to-face training programme for CCI in three areas: technology development, future trends and mind-set in advanced manufacturing.  

The project partnership will develop tools to initiate and facilitate cross-sectoral links between CCI and AVM. CCI will participate in different match-making formats with AVM companies, applying open and innovative methods such as design thinking, which will result in cross-sectoral cooperation.


#COCO4CCI Info Day for AVM

On 11 September 2020, Confindustria Veneto SIAV and Università Ca' Foscari will co-host the COCO4CCI Info Day for AVMs, which aims to present the COCO4CCI networking and training opportunities, as well as the potential for AVMs to cooperate with CCI, for example to develop new products, new marketing strategies and new ways to promote their industrial heritage.

The online meeting will include the participation of experts who will tackle the COCO4CCI three dimensions (technology, future trends and mindset) through case studies and concrete examples on how AVM could start/deepen the collaboration with CCIs.
