ECIA: European Creative Industries Alliance
How the European Commission wants to create sustainably profitable creative companies
- Series: Innovation
The European Commission puts an emphasis on the creative industry. In a joint effort, the Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry and the Directorate-General for Education and Culture installed an active platform for the European creative industry: the ECIA.
The ECIA's web portal which was developed with the platform How to Grow offers creative micro and small companies the support of the European Commission. It's worth checking out this diverse offer. The delegate for innovation politics at the Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry, Carsten Schierenbeck, becomes pragmatic and explains how the ECIA helps by giving out innovation vouchers. In the next three years, 100 million euros in subsidies shall be provided.
