InduCCI-RGB  InduCCI - Cultural and Creative Industries in Traditional Industrial Regions as Drivers for Transformation in Economy and  Society

Digitization, circular economy, renewable energies, artificial intelligence: Industry is currently experiencing the arrival of   another transformation cycle. In the near future, industries will operate and appear differently – with profound effects not only on production modes but also for working and social environments.
To enable Central Europe´s traditional industrial regions to persist, there is need for both: economic innovation and societal development. Culture and creative industries (CCI) – known for their alternative working structures and lateral thinking character – could come in as a core driving force on both levels of this transition.
