Innovation Practices Push Priority of Creative Industries within European Innovation Agenda

The 7th European Creative Industries Summit 2017 on November 27 in Brussels put the latest innovative policies and practices in innovation on the table. Its aim: To underpin the Initiative Report on Cultural Creative Industries, adopted by the European Parliament in December 2016, for an “adoption of an overarching and transversal EU strategy for CCI“, a „policy priority within the ESIFs, Horizon 2020, and the MFF as a whole“ for CCI and the the development of the European Innovation Council.”
