More information about the 'Creativity' Workshop

The Creativity Unit within DG CONNECT supports ICT-related research and innovation actions for creative sectors and research on creative processes involving ICT.

To gather new ideas for our future work we hosted a two-day workshop 'The Future of ICT for Creativity and Creative Industries' on 26 and 27 of March in Luxembourg.

80 invited experts attended the event. They included creative professionals from different creative industries (games, film, video, music, design and fashion, architecture, advertising and others), technology providers for these sectors and researchers from the relevant fields (for exact statistics on participation please see the workshop report).

The main goal of the event was to provide a discussion forum for experts to create a vision and outline directions for our research and innovation actions in the coming years.

To stimulate creativity and allow everyone to make the best contribution possible, we were using participatory leadership methodology: World Café and Open Space

The event was very fruitful. During the two days the participants discussed in-depth 18 topics in 19 Open Space sessions.

We are happy we can now make available to you the report with the findings of our 'Creativity' workshop.

Please read the report – or, if you have great time constraints, at least the executive summary – and find out more about our 'Creativity' workshop and the work we do in the 'Creativity' Unit.
