The EU is looking for innovative projects in the fields of the audiovisual, culture, and creative sectors, to integrate an Innovation Lab with a budget of €13,6 million, as part of the Creative Europe Program.
This Creative Innovation Lab will incentivize actors from various cultural and creative sectors to develop and test novel digital solutions that have the potential to have a positive long-term influence on numerous cultural and creative sectors.
The Lab will aid in the development of novel solutions (such as tools, models, and processes) that may be applied to the audiovisual industry as well as at least one other creative and/or cultural sector. Solutions should be easily repeatable and have market penetration potential. The concept does not have to be applied directly to the audiovisual business, although it might be simply copied in this area.
There are two themes for the second year of the Creative Innovation Lab: greening and creative teaching methods to address pertinent social concerns such as misinformation. The goal is to develop a more sustainable and inclusive living environment and way of life by encouraging lifecycle thinking.
The Creative Innovation Lab will bring together participants from various cultural and creative sectors to build and test novel solutions for a circular economy (e.g., tools, models, and processes).
These solutions would need to integrate sustainability, inclusivity, and beauty, be repeatable across industries, and have the capacity to influence society's behavior.
- Improve the competitiveness of the European audiovisual and other cultural and creative sectors through cross-sector collaboration;
- Improve the greening process of the European audiovisual and other cultural and creative sectors through cross-sector collaboration;
- Increase knowledge transfer between different sectors of creative industries;
- Increase the visibility, availability, and diversity of European content in the digital age;
- Improve business models and use of data;
- Increase the potential audience of European content in the digital age.
Applications that provide suitable measures to create a more sustainable and ecologically responsible industry, gender balance, inclusion, diversity, and representativeness, will be given special consideration.
Apply here until 7 September at 17h00 GMT.
