European industry is experiencing the arrival of another transformation cycle, which will affect not only production modes but also working conditions and social environments. To make central Europe´s traditional industrial regions persistent, there is a need for economic innovation and societal development. Culture and creative industries (CCI) can be a core driving force on both levels of this transition.

In the InduCCI project, industrial regions team up to tackle the challenge of fostering CCI. Through policies and trainings, they intend to bring about supportive frameworks for CCI in industrial regions – on regional, national and EU levels. Through pilot actions, they investigate the potential of CCI as an economic actor and innovator as well as a driver of social change and new entrepreneurship. The most promising approaches are then made available in a toolbox to other industrial regions and European CCI networks for policy take-up.
