The Culture and Creative Industry (CCI) sector lacks a transnational and cross-sectoral shared vision on what could be its contribution to economic and social growth in central Europe. This goes along with a lack of capacities in CCI for linking up with other industry sectors to foster innovation processes.
The COCO4CCI project will build capacities for cross-sectoral cooperation in advanced manufacturing (AVM), by creating a transnational CCI collider network. Based on a mapping of CCI potentials and a roadmap, COCO4CCI will develop the collider concept, in which CCI hubs and business support organisations work in tandem, complementing each other with knowledge and experiences from its sector.
COCO4CCI will train facilitators who will implement an extensive online and face-to-face training programme for CCI in three areas: technology development, future trends and mind-set in advanced manufacturing.
The project partnership will develop tools to initiate and facilitate cross-sectoral links between CCI and AVM. CCI will participate in different match-making formats with AVM companies, applying open and innovative methods such as design thinking, which will result in cross-sectoral cooperation.
On the 2nd of December 2020, Confindustria Veneto SIAV and Università Ca’ Foscari will co-organise a COCO4CCI Info Day for AVM, focusing on “Industrial Design and Creative Communication”.
This time the Info Day will be realized in collaboration with Galileo Visionary District and its department Italian School of Design and Onde Alte, open mind and open innovation communication agency.
After a presentation of the COCO4CCI networking and training opportunities, Andrea Busato and Massimiliano Ventimiglia will share their experience.

COCO4CCI has 12 project partners from 6 countries
Aim of this activity is to provide CCI with specialised knowhow on technology trends and enable them to challenge and work with AVM.
During the initial interviews we had detected a lack of specialised knowledge among CCIs, they are not aware of the many technology trends and the opportunities they may provide. An interactive workshop format should help CCI get acquainted with different technology trends and experience them first hand.
This concept for a workshop focusing on the dimension mindset aims to help the participating CCIs to understand the way AVMs operate and their value system. It is one out of 3 dimensions: mindset, technology development and future trends.
The methodology document shall help the partners to prepare training tools. The document will be up-dated later and include also information on the collaboration tools. The document will give guidance, provide more information on the tools to be developed, the division of work and the expected results.
