Creative Drive: Solutions

In innovation projects we combine different strengths, perspectives and approaches from the creative industry and other branches. We support you in creating new markets and give innovative impulses for the Euregio as a creative hotspot.

Thereby, Creative Drive is a cross-sectoral platform training selected actors of the creative industry (Creative Driver) in concrete innovation projects of the free economy, public authorities or sciences and strengthens the various innovation potentials of the region. The implemented innovation projects are supposed to serve sustainably as best practice examples for a cross-sectoral cooperation within the EMR. That is how Creative Drive boosts the access to new markets across borders and branches as well as the design of new products and services, a better visibility of the branch as well as the entrepreneurial qualification of the actors.

The focus of Creative Drive lies in bringing participants together in interdisciplinary teams and in supporting them in an integrated process of solution development. In doing so, Creative Drive moves beyond finding ideas, because especially the joint implementation of projects generates entrepreneual success of learning as well as the degree of innovation.
