CreatiFI is organizing a final opportunity for entrepreneurs to receive up to €50k funding to develop an innovative application.
The Creative Ring Challenge will take place in Barcelona, Ghent, Eindhoven, Brussels, Helsinki and Trentino. Each of the hubs has identified a theme in which they’re looking for solution to implement in their city environment.
The purpose of this challenge is to invite local digital hubs to co-create and bring together creative professionals, developers, FIWARE experts and stakeholders active in Creative Industries.
The 5 most promising creative projects in each hub will be selected to receive funding and coaching up to €50 000.
Creative Ring -Towards Connected Smart and Creative Cities and Citizens
The Creative Ring will establish connections with existing organisations and institutions working in different domains through networks. The networks, and their members, will receive preferential access to the Creative Ring hubs, tools and projects. These links will enable collaborations not only between Creative Industries but will connect creativity with many other areas of research, innovation and experimentation.
The Creative Ring focuses on deploying and interlinking open platforms to engage citizens and SMEs in the co-designed creative services. The main focus of the initiative is to boost the Creative Industries sector in Europe.
