The overall objective of the European project 4H-CREAT is to improve cooperation between public, private and research and development (R&D) actors in order to foster innovation, capacity building and innovation knowledge in the cultural and creative small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Specifically, the project will develop several activities, including a transnational knowledge transfer model, to facilitate the application of R&D results to SMEs in the cultural and creative industries, thus promoting innovation through the collaborative paradigm of the four-helix, which involves the participation of end users through co-creation and co-design processes.

Co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), through the INTERREG Atlantic Area Cooperation Program 2014-2020, and with a total budget of € 1,749,825, the 4H-CREAT project has an European partnership consisting of seven institutions: Glasgow Caledonian University (Parceiro líder), ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (DINÂMIA’CET), Cámara Oficial de Comercio, Industria y Navegación de Sevilla, Etablissement Public d’Aménagement Bordeaux - Euratlantique, Laval Mayenne Technopole, Limerick Institute of Technology, and Fundación Municipal de Cultura del Ayuntamiento de Avilés.
