During the European Week of Regions and Cities 2020 edition, the “Cultural and Creative Regional Ecosystems (CCRE-S3)” thematic platform was launched.

Cultural and Creative Regional Ecosystems (CCRE-S3) is a newly supported thematic area under the S3 Platform for Industrial Modernisation (S3P- Industry) of the European Commission.

CCRE-S3 aims to stimulate new insights and opportunities related to cultural and creative experiences for local communities and residents by involving four groups of professions that use, apply and implement new technologies within the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) sector, which has the power to improve lives, transform communities and local/regional economies, and generate growth and skilled jobs.

It is the result of collaboration in the field of Cultural and Creative Industries between three active member regions of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR), namely Western Greece (EL), Aragon (ES) and Tuscany (IT). If you want to know more, here is the link:
