TALIA inter-connects the innovation clusters developed within thematic modular projects to create a transnational meta-cluster of creativity and social innovation in the Mediterranean.
Intention of the Social & Creative community is to improve the concept of transnational cooperation in MED area, targeting community building as the essence of cooperation. Under “surveillance” of TALIA are a number of Creative and Social Innovation projects, each having own focus and dynamics, but with certain overlapping issues, cross-cutting commonalities and other similarities, which are recognized as thematic points for collaboration and joint actions in MED area and beyond.
The Social & Creative community is working to promote trans-local innovation clusters for creative and social innovation by providing instruments that allow trans-national MED modular projects to connect with local innovation communities, starting from the regions of participating partners.
Thus, its operative objectives are:
- to engage and support modular projects in creativity and social innovation
- to communicate a common message for creativity and social innovation in the MED space
- to attain policy impact by scaling up and out project results.
