ERRIN's Design & Creativity Working Group welcomes you to an event on the 8th of March, 09.00 - 13.00, where participants will explore benefits of including design and creative industries in innovation! As usual, the registration is done on ERRIN's website - please click here to go to the registration page. The event is hosted by Unioncamere Lombardia (Place du Champs de Mars 2, Brussels). 

During the first part of the event we will learn about design-driven innovation and creative industries supported through EU programmes. After that, we will focus on access to finance via the Cultural and Creative Sector Guarantee Facility as well as crowdfunding. Last but not least, we will discuss how design and creative industries can be included in regional and local innovation systems. 

The event aims at bringing together representatives from SMEs, universities, EU institutions, regional and local offices in Brussels, civil servants, intermediaries and practitioners. 

The event is public, open to ERRIN members and external organisations alike - feel free to circulate!
