Creative-CH Project

CREATIVE-CH project is a European project supporting organizations, local authorities and SMEs in the development of new ways and initiatives to communicate and promote cultural heritage for purposes such as regional development, tourism and citizens' cultural participation. The project is managed by a partnership among six institutions: PIN Servizi Didattici e Scientifici per l'Università di Firenze s.c.r.l. (Italy, coordinator); Salzburg Research (Austria); University of Coimbra (Portugal); Museu de la Ciència i de la Tècnica de Catalunya (Spain); Universitatea de Vest din Timisoara (Romania); and MFG Medien- und Filmgesellschaft Baden-Wuerttemberg (Germany).

One of the goals of the project is to set up a so-called "peer-learning" network of organizations and experts willing to share knowledge and experiences about initiatives related to the project scope. The network is expected to progressively build a corpus of expertise relying on individual and institutional experience. Some 20 exemplary cases will be eventually chosen for inclusion in a handbook of success stories on successful collaboration between science and technology (S&T), cultural heritage (CH) and cultural and creative industries (CCI) planned to be published by the project.

Participation in the network is at no cost. Related activities, including the publication mentioned above, as well as the attendance of project meetings are also free, and in some cases attendance travel costs are supported by the project. Among other activities, the project organizes a series of workshops with the participation of experts on related themes, to be preferably chosen among the peer-learning network members. Furthermore, the members of the peer-learning network will be regularly updated about forthcoming workshops, topics discussed on the CHIEF or special gatherings through the newsletter. In addition, Creative-CH will provide to participants a virtual forum (CHIEF) to post and exchange information and comments. Joining the peer-learning network will facilitate the creation of interesting synergies between the organizations involved, strengthening their relationships and establishing new ones. This may be especially useful for future projects funded within EU programmes.

The network will collect and make available a list of participants under www.creative-heritage.eu/5260.html.

If you are interested in joining the CREATIVE peer-learning network, please send an e-mail with the contact details of the person in charge of participation.
