The “Mediterranean Forum of Creativity and Social Innovation” is approaching!
Do not take any other commitments on October 15th and 16th: we are waiting for you in Bari (Italy) to celebrate and enlarge the Social&Creative Community. Stay tuned!
Creativity and social innovation are the enabling forces for prosperity and well-being in the MED space, in line with EU 2020 as well as the specific potentials of the Mediterranean itself. This in a context of territorial innovation where innovation is built on the territorial capital specific to a given place or the Mediterranean as a whole.
The Social&Creative community of the InterregMED Programme featured by TALIA project is being built by orchestrating the progress and results of individual projects within the Priority Axis specifically related to Cultural and Creative Industries on the one hand, and Social Innovation on the other.
TALIA operates on 3 learning loops concerning projects, programmes and policies, to co-develop a Mediterranean model for creativity and innovation directly with the territorial actors and stakeholders concerned. This policy learning process can then feed into the implementation of regional Smart Specialisation Strategies.
The project acts horizontally to improve the policy impact of the modular projects in the creativity and social innovation domain. It thus capture the insights coming from the most interesting experiences taking place in our territories, to support policy makers who aim to effectively deploy a Mediterranean Model of creativity and social innovation. TALIA applies this model to build coherence between the eleven Interreg-MED projects promoting creativity and social innovation in areas ranging from cultural and creative industries and co-working spaces to innovative public procurement.
Partners, policy makers, stakeholders, experts, creatives and social innovators, academia, media and general public will all be active participants of this two-day final conference aimed at celebrating the past three years of successful cooperation and positive impact and demonstrating the work done and the results achieved by the community.
