• The creative and cultural sector across Europe evolves and changes fast, so do the skills required of individuals active in the sector. These new dimensions can only be met by provision of relevant sensitive training of the people who are or will be involved in the Cultural and Creative Industry (CCI) which is the main focus of the iCREATE project which involves 6 organisations from Greece, Bulgaria, Spain, Sweden and UK.

    iCREATE is an innovative project that addresses the need to empower young people - students (from HEIs, secondary and post-secondary schools), employed in the cultural domain or unemployed, all aspiring to become CCI entrepreneurs who want to start their own business, by developing their skills with a view to increase labour participation and develop better matching between skills and labour market needs.

    iCREATE project will create a Tailored Training Framework delivering to young people an integrated package of modern training tools and approaches to develop and enrich their knowledge and CCI-related entrepreneurial skills and competencies and thus will accelerate CCI entrepreneurship from the creation of the business idea and value proposition until the business startup and first steps toward sustainability.
