DINAMIA’CET-IUL Engaged in Knowledge Transfer Activities with Cultural and Creative Industries
On the 15th of March, the 3rd meeting of the European transnational project “4H-CREAT – Quadruple helix to stimulate innovation in the Atlantic Cultural & Creative SMEs”, in which ISCTE-IUL, through DINAMIA’CET-IUL, is a partner, took place in Limerick (Ireland).The project – which focuses on increasing cooperation between different types of social actors – has begun to study the involvement of final users and new publics in the creation and production of innovative products. The reunion saw the alignment of project goals and lines of action for the next few months, namely in the tasks of identifying new generational niches, interactions between entrepreneurs in a virtual fair, and other activities of enrichment of institutional actors.
The participation of DINAMIA’CET-IUL in the 4H-CREAT project is mostly in its elaboration of a report on knowledge transfer oriented to the needs and interests of small and medium enterprises (SME’s) of the cultural and creative sector, developing a dedicated technical model that should be concluded for presentation by the end of the present year.
Besides the meeting agenda, a study visit was carried out to the creative incubator of the Limerick School of Arts and Design (LSAD) as well as to the installations of the LSAD and FabLab Limerick, part of the International FabLabs network, with the goal of improving knowledge of the Irish case, but also to raise awareness of the diversity in which actors of the cultural and creative sector act in the European context.
Project 4H-CREAT, with actions planned between 2017-2019 is coordinated by Glasgow Caledonian University and includes entities from five countries of the Atlantic Area.
