Summit

Wednesday, 11 October 2017

11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

THE ARTS+ Innovation Summit for the Creative Sectors

THE ARTS+ RUNWAY & THE ARTS+ SALON

What are the best ways to support innovation in the creative industries? New technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, 3-D printing and big data can trigger innovation at all levels of the creative sector – innovative products, services and processes, new business models or organiztional cultures and much more. Currently, all teh players in teh undustry seem to be grappling with the challenges of innovation on their own. But what would things look like if there were a wider European support network for innovation – one that cut transaction costs and boosted the creative sector to a higher, digital level?

The Innovation Summit, a small but influential gathering, will establish a core working group: a European network composed of diverse individuals and institutions, ranging from policymakers and researchers to industry players and intermediaries such as cluster organisations and trade associations.

The event will explore the best ways to provide support for tech-based innovation in the creative sector, at both the national and European level. In addition, it will lay the ground for a high-ranking policy summit in 2018.

The Innovation Summit comprises three complementary components, which will all take place on Wednesday, 11 October, between 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

 

Registration required.
