@Diversity, Creative Shift Forum on September 29th, 2014


Since two years, the EU pilot project @diversity – innovative ideas for cultural and creative industries in Europe – is a competition and an incubation program that transformed innovative ideas into new business models to find private funding. It’s also a forum that gathered about 100 cultural and creative entrepreneurs, researchers, financiers, IT experts and policy makers around a vivid exchange about entrepreneurship, the appliance of technology and access to finance in the cultural and creative sectors.

This year, the forum takes place on September 29th in Brussels. To participate, you have to Apply now until September 9th. It’s an opportunity to shape the future of cultural entrepreneurship in Europe, exchange experiences with leaders of European initiatives, meet decision makers of the european commission.

There will be discussions on entrepreneurship, technology and innovation, and access to finance. Malo Girod de I’Ain, Founder of Digitalarti, will speak during panel discussion on “Technology & Innovation” at 11.30, with Frank Boyd, Director of Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network, Kasper Jordaens, Head of Art&D, iminds and Albert Gauthier, Scientific Officer, Directorate General Connect, European Commission.

An innovation battle brings participants together to work in groups of 6-8 people on a solution for a specific challenge of cultural entrepreneurship identified in the panel discussions. The day will end with a Networking cocktail with the NEM Summit.
