Innovation is at the heart of the European strategy for growth, employment and resilience in the next funding period starting 2021. In this context the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Member States have recognized the potentials of the creative industries to contribute to innovation. Especially at the interface of creative industries and digital technologies, both break-through and incremental innovations can effectively be supported. The range of possible applications is manyfold, for instance in the areas of health & wellbeing, mobility, green energy and climate change.
The European Creative Industries Summit 2018 (ECIS 2018) will show how the creative industries drive the economy as well as the development of regions and the society as a whole through cross-innovation.
