The project in few words
Coordinated by Sinnergiak Social Innovation, Transcreativa is a European project financed by the SUDOE programme that pursues three types of objective: improving understanding of the creative industries sector (academic research), creating products/services that solve issues concerning creative industries (technology transfer), and developing the professional skills of young job seekers (social innovation).
With our previous experience inspiring stakeholders, antic – a project partner – has brought together and mobilised stakeholders in the fields of employment, youth, technologies and businesses in order to encourage collaborations between these organisations from different backgrounds and ensure that the results, tools and methods created are circulated to various targets.
Transcreativa has united a consortium of 9 European partners: a triptych in each country to motivate stakeholders in economic development (antic [FR], Donostia-San Sebastian 2016 [SP], Chamber of Commerce of Coimbra [PT]), research (Kedge Business School [FR], Sinnergiak Social Innovation [SP], University of Coimbra [PT]) and technology transfer (ESTIA [FR], Tecnalia [SP], Pedro Nunez Institute [PT]).
The project’s three regions of intervention were Aquitaine in France, the Basque Country in Spain and Coimbra/central region in Portugal.
Transcreativa made it possible to produce a map of creative industries in the three regions, revealing their importance and economic impact, and technological prototypes adapted to the needs of professionals in creative industries. Antic and ESTIA have supported around 50 young job seekers, helping them develop their skills based on real challenges encountered by businesses. Lastly, the two French partners created the Creative Hub Izarbel (Tech Space and Connect Space)
The Transcreativa project received a budget of 1.3 Million euros, partly financed by the FEDER funds under the SUDOE programme.
