Dear Time Machine friends!

Let´s jump right in – We are thrilled to announce the successful bid of the ICE consortium taking home the win of the EIT Call for the Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) for Europe’s vibrant Culture and Creative Sectors and Industries (CCSI). The Time Machine Organisation is an integral part of the new EIT Culture & Creativity innovation community, teaming up with our long-standing partner the Europeana Foundation. In the form of the “EIT Culture & Creativity” the consortium now takes the European CCSI as a change agent for the Triple Transition in Europe to the next level.
We are looking forward to actively co-shaping the EIT Innovation Community and subsequently, the direction of our activities within the Action Programmes envisioned by this pan-European partnership.

All the while, a lot has been going on within our community since our last newsletter. We are happy to share with you our most recent network updates and bring you up to speed on our Local Time Machine projects. 
The directory below leads you without further ado to your preferred area of interest.

Happy reading and enjoy your summer!
