EIT Culture & Creativity is an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). It is a Knowledge and Innovation Community designed to strengthen and transform Europe’s Cultural and Creative Sectors and Industries (CCSI) by connecting creatives and organisations to Europe’s largest innovation network. For the next 7 years, EIT Culture & creativity will: 

  • empower and connect creatives and innovators across Europe and contribute to a more resilient, more sustainable, and transformational sector.
  • unlock latent value from a multitude of small cultural and creative stakeholders through technology transfer, improved cross-sectoral collaboration and their effective integration in production value networks.
  • strengthen artistic driven innovation as an indispensable part of the European Innovation Ecosystem.
  • reinforce the appreciation and anchoring of European values, and identities. 
  • harness the unique position of the Cultural and Creative Sectors and Industries to facilitate Europe’s Green, Digital and Social transitions.
