The strategic role of transnational cooperation in enhancing competitiveness in the cultural and creative sector



The five MED capitalisation projects in the field of innovation and creative cluster organized a joint conference on April, 2nd in Marseilles.

Targeted research and innovation support is a strategic element in the economic development of territories. In this context, smart specialization will be a crucial element of the new Cohesion Policy 2014-2020. The European Commission considers creative industries to bear high added value enhancing the regional competitiveness. MED and other cooperation projects can contribute effectively to this challenge while strengthening the competitiveness of creative industries in the Mediterranean area.

During this seminar, the lessons from the challenges faced during this period and recommendations for the future programme 2014-2020 were highlighted.

Capitalization 'speakers corner' of the URBAN EMPATHY project 



Peer Review series, summer 2012 



Following the conclusions of the ‘Cluster and Capitalisation Day’ (November 2011), a consultation with projects’ stakeholders led to the identification of Eight thematic clusters. Four out of these eight clusters have been officially launched: preparatory analysis on projects’ outputs/synergies and peer review meetings were carried out in summer 2012. More thematic meetings will be carried out in 2013 (see above).



Cluster and Capitalisation Day: Marseilles, November 2011



The 'Cluster and Capitalisation' day was organised in Marseilles on 30th November 2011. It involved more than 100 partners from around half of the MED projects approved until. The aim of this day was to present the clusterisation approach to the projects, to fine tune the topics of the future clusters with them and to bring them on board in the implementation of the clusterisation activities.  After the Rome workshops (June/July 2011), the ‘Cluster and Capitalisation’ day represented an important occasion also for making another step toward the setting up of a “capitalisation community”. The working groups organized gave them the possibility to identify synergies with other projects and to pave the way for new collaborative dynamics, setting the basis for the launch of the current 8 thematic clusters.


Thematic workshop series: Rome, June/July 2011



The organization of four thematic workshops (one on each priority axis) involving standard projects from the first call and strategic projects (approved until) set the starting point of the capitalisation process. During these workshops the capitalisation methodology was shared with the participants, which started to get acquainted with the concept, developing a common understanding. The workshop represented a first occasion for projects’ representatives to share information on outputs and results and to make the first step toward the setting  up of a “capitalisation community”. The capitalisation process has been conceived as a collective exercise and its success depend on the direct engagement of projects’ stakeholders. The workshops have been instrumental for defining the lines of a “common path of capitalisation”, sharing with projects’ stakeholders the idea of launching a call for capitalisation process and discussing  with them about the opportunity to set up thematic clusters and the main features they should have.



First 'Capitalization Brainstorming', Naples, November 2009



A first brainstorming involving programme responsibles and the MED project community was carried out in 2009. The stakeholders expressed interest to implement capitalization activities and to work together.  They called on the JTS to implement communication instruments to disseminate information on capitalisation results and to involve and supports the partners in the capitalisation process. On the basis of the results of this event, a capitalisation plan was set up and the capitalisation process officially launched in March 2011.
