The next Policy Platform meeting (PLP) of ECIA will take place in Barcelona on the 5th and 6th of June 2013. Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and home of many creative and cultural highlights.

The Policy Platform will take place in collaboration with BizBarcelona. BizBarcelona is the macro-event for business and entrepreneurial initiative, focused on entrepreneurs, self-employed professionals and SMEs looking for business opportunities, advice, financing, inspiration and support.

During the meeting access to finance and cross-sectoral innovation will be the main themes on the agenda. The PLP inspirational sessions on access to finance will be open to everyone visiting BizBarcelona. International experts and ECIA-members will present their view on:

  • What opportunities does Europe offer on Access to Finance for the cultural and creative SMEs;
  • The future of crowdfunding in Europe for CCIs: from project to corporate crowdfunding;
  • Roundtable: What do European investors look for in the CCIs?

The event will be organised by ICEC, the Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies, one of the partners of ECIAP and responsible for the theme Access to Finance within ECIAP. The agenda for the event will be available by the beginning of April, so stay tuned!
