The European Creative Industries Alliance (ECIA) was an open platform set up in 2012 by the European Commission’s Enterprise and Industry Directorate-General with the aim to test new business support measures and provide more favourable conditions for innovation and growth supported by creative SMEs in Europe. It gathered experts from 28 partner organisations and 12 countries in the field of creative industries willing to collaborate to set a new political agenda to maximize the innovative contributions of Europe’s creative industries under the title Create! Innovate! Grow!

The report “Create! Innovate! Grow!” with the recommendations of ECIA is available here.

ECIA was funded by the Directorate General for Enterprise and Industry of the European Commission under the CIP -Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme, which aims to encourage the competitiveness of European Enterprises, as a part of the “Innovation Union” and the “Industrial Policy” flagship initiatives.

ECIA: the next phase
After this period of policy learning, we want to establish a new platform that would reflect the vision and ambitions of ECIA promoting creative industries and their impact on the wider economy and involving local, regional and national policy makers, as well as related stakeholders, like networks, industry organisations, intermediary bodies, among others.
