The Social & Creative Community
TALIA, Territorial Appropriation of Leading-edge Innovation Actions, is the Interreg-MED Programme’s horizontal project promoting the coherence and impact of individual modular projects dealing with social and creative innovation initiatives. TALIA operates in three main directions: engagement and support, communication, and attaining impact. TALIA builds on these on-going activities to translate results as they unfold – in real time, so to speak – into useful instruments for policy action, through the aggregation of evidence, identiﬁcation of relevant indicators for creative and social innovation, and development of a common model of Mediterranean innovation.
