CINEMA

Creative industry for new urban economies in the Danube region.

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The revitalisation of urban areas, especially inner city areas is a key challenge for social cohesion and competitiveness in the Danube Region. Many inner city areas suffer from desertion as result of industrial transformation, changing consumer habits, suburbanisation, etc. The creative industry (CI) is a cradle of innovation and underestimated economic asset with high potential to contribute to the revitalisation of town centres and regeneration of urban areas.
CINEMAs objective is to improve the innovative framework conditions for creative industries and urban regeneration in the Danube Region, by developing and testing innovative model, tools and services based on cross-fertilisation and start-up actions among CI and the urban economy sectors like retail and small businesses. CINEMA will build capacities and foster the cooperation of all actors and stakeholders in order to sustainably improve the framework conditions for innovation for CI and urban economies. The CINEMA quadruple helix partnership will act as a policy driver to improve transnational dialogue and cooperation on institutional & policy level, especially among municipalities & city administration in the DR.
CINEMA partnership of municipalities, BSO, SMEs, creatives, and NGOs will:
  • develop three roadmaps to support the shaping of new & restructuring of old urban economies meeting environmental & social challenges of the DR like revitalisation of abandoned buildings and deserted city centres
  • develop tools & services for BSO & policy makers to improve the capacities for innovation among CI and urban economy sectors with strong focus on start-up activities
  • pilot all tools to bring creative spirit & innovation to urban economy sectors and initialise 5 cross-sectoral collaboration projects and establish 3 CI support centres
  • build a sustainable network of key actors in urban development
  • prepare a set of transnational policy recommendations including 8 local action plans

Project aims:

  1. improve the innovative framework conditions for the creative industries and urban regeneration in the Danube region by developing and testing an innovative model, tools and services based on mutual enrichment and start-up activities between KP and urban sectors such as retail and small businesses
  2. build capacity and promote cooperation between all actors and stakeholders in order to sustainably improve the framework conditions for innovation for CIs and urban economies. The CINEMA Quadruple-Helix Partnership will act as a policy driver for improving transnational dialogue and cooperation at institutional and political level, especially between municipalities and cities in the Danube region
