Hallo! Здравейте! Helló! Здравo! Salut!

Great news are coming! Within the European project “CreatINNES – Strategic Partnership for Innovation and Business Skills Development in Cultural and Creative Industries Sector”, two training programs for blended learning are already developed targeting Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) in Europe.

We are six partner organizations INI-Novation GmbH (Germany), Budakov Films (Bulgaria), Business Information Center “INNOBRIDGE” (Bulgaria), Macedonian Enterprise Development Foundation (North Macedonia), Teleberry Kft (Hungary) and Alanam (France), and fully dedicated to our mission – to provide support for CCI startups and freelancers via innovative training programs based on knowledge co-creation and cross-sector collaboration between creativity and business.


CCI face Challenges

The Creative and Cultural Industries (CCI) are acknowledged as a source of copious innovation and a key driver for economic growth, increasing the competitiveness of the European economy, especially in specific sectors such as tourism, cultural heritage, and design. Despite its overall economic significance, the field of CCI has faced a lot of challenges, especially nowadays COVID-19 situation, when all industries slowed down their activities.

The training programs are based on large-scale survey conducted in Germany, Bulgaria, Hungary, France and North Macedonia among CCI and business sectors there. Based on the received answers, skills gaps were identified and analysis of the training needs was prepared. By exploiting the mutually reinforcing impact of the two sectors, we developed CreatINNES Training Programs to support the innovation and growth of the economy in the European regions.


Two Multilingual Training Programs by CreatINNES

„Entrepreneurship for freelancers and startups“ and „Creative Thinking for Innovation“ are the two training programs developed by CreatINNES consortium. These programs will promote a range of skills needed by CCI entrepreneurs and start-up owners to be successful and thrive in today’s competitive world. Each training program contains 8 modules with very well selected short-burst of information which is clear, concrete and easy to be memorized. The training materials are short and clear enriched with good practices and current trends. Thanks to the practical tests for self-assessment after each module, the learners will be able to monitor their current progress. The training materials are organized in a way that allows learning at any time, in any place.


Easy Accesses for Learners

“CreatINNES Academy” is aesthetically designed web-platform to provide easy, free and secure access to the both Training Programs. The platform is based on the Moodle software package, designed to create web-based educational courses and websites. At the moment the platform is tested and analyses are prepared. The “CreatINNES Academy” web-platform will be available in the spring of 2021.

Dear Stakeholders, we developed CreatINNES Training Programs for blended learning with diligence and professionalism, because we believe that in this way we contribute to the development of the next generation of designers and creative entrepreneurs!
