The event will inform stakeholders of EU project, policy and profiling opportunities for the creative industries. Mette Quinn, Policy Officer on Support for Innovation from the European Commissionâ€™s Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry will be present for the day. It will focus on the EU, regional and local policy context for supporting the creative industries. Whilst the EU policy context will look at the overall strategy for growth and jobs, the upcoming Innovation Act and the Green Paper on Cultural and Creative Industries, the regional and local policy context will look at educational provision and business support and how this complements the EU policy context. The second half of the event will be composed of practical workshops looking at EU funding programmes that can be accessed by the Creative industries sector, including the Lifelong Learning Programme, the Culture and Media programmes and the Territorial Cooperation programmes.
