Dear colleagues in the Design & Creativity working group,
We hope you had a good time off over the holidays and that you are now ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work on shaping EU policy again!
Following our brainstorming session in December, and our ambition to further involve you all, we invite you to join our next working session on the 29th of January, 15.00 – 17.00 at Skåne European Office, Rue du Luxembourg 3. We will use this meeting to work on organising a seminar:
Ludovico Monforte (Unioncamere Lombardia) presented a great idea relevant to one of the topics we identified together in December – supporting SMEs / creative industries and access to finance. On the 7th of March his stakeholders are organising a training in Brussels on design-driven innovation, understanding of new technologies, organisations and business trends. The training could be very interesting for our regional experts as well as for SMEs – see the attached document for more information.
This would be a great opportunity to invite our stakeholders to Brussels, and to arrange a seminar the morning after, tailor-made to them.
Please prepare by talking to colleagues in your region and see what they are interested in discussing at such a seminar, and also if they could be able to attend as well as other organisations/SMEs in your region that could be interested.
All ideas are welcome as usual, and our working session discussion will be held in small groups like last time.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 29th!
Anna and Jakob
