Creative Changemakers – in how far the creative industry contributed to the EMR and how it will shape its future?!


All partners of the Interreg IV A project "Creative Drive" invite you to take part in the final conference ”Creative Changemakers – in how far the creative industry contributed to the Euregio Meuse-Rhine and how it will shape its future”. 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.
The programme of the conference will focus on the interdisciplinary collaboration between the creative industry and other economic industries and the resulting innovation potential for the Euregio Meuse-Rhine. Another focus will be the transnational cooperation in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine and the contribution which the creative industry can provide according to an euregional identity.
