- Project overview
- Creative entrepreneurship in ceramic regions – developing,
Ceramics are deeply rooted in our daily lives and quality products rely on creative designers that understand the materials and its functionalities. Central European regions have long-standing traditions and up-to-date knowledge in this field and offer entrepreneurial opportunities to many small and medium sized companies (SMEs). The CerDee project established a CCI network of knowledge institutes, SMEs, regions and a network of museums. The Project Partners created a joint knowledge pool by assessing and mapping existing knowledge, approaches and economic potential of the sector. We developed cooperative and EU-wide applicable trainings and education outreach activities for boosting entrepreneurial skills and the new knowledge base to regional creative SMEs. All activities are strongly supported and facilitated by up-to-date IT-tools to boost accessibility, skills development and marketing. A key output is the platform Ceramics in Europe that works as a knowledge, marketing and cooperation hub for the central European ceramic CCI.
