On October 2-3, 2017 a study visit to open DOORS project location was held in Valencia (Spain) with the aim of carrying out one-to-one interaction between Social&Creative partners and the vertical projects dealing with creative and social innovation. Particularly, this was an occasion to support the open DOORS project’s event, included in the Social & Creative Week, whose main target was to launch the modular project network – Sharing and collaborative economy in the Mediterranean Regions.
The study visit has been held at the University of Valencia and Imsomnia locations, where a presentation of the open DOORS project and the near projects involved in the collaborative economy was organized. Also, the event was the opportunity of the solemn constitution and official signing of Valencia Declaration on Sharing &Collaborative Economy, representing the constitution act of the MedShare Network for Sharing and Collaborative Economy in the Mediterranean Area, and the first tangible result of the Interreg Med programme Axis 1.
Round tables with experts were quite useful to work deeply in the concept of the collaborative economy and real projects around the open DOORS modular project. This activity has allowed to make visible and show the reality of a growing economy based in the collaboration. Some interesting initiatives were present to reinforce this concept, and to create synergies between different projects and points of view of this social movement.
