The conference will take place at Forum M in Aachen on 26th November, 2013, 10:30am.
„Creative Drive“ ends on the 31st December of this year - therefore the conference will not only be an informative closing of our project but will also give a contribution for further support and strengthening of the creative industry in our region and beyond.
