Service innovation is officially not one of the six themes to be looked into by the European Creative Industries Alliance. The European Commission has asked the European Creative Industries Alliance to integrate Service Innovation as part of its recommendations. Just like the cultural and creative industries, service innovation is considered a driver for change and innovation.
Just like internationalization, spill-overs and demand driven it’s been taken care of by the ECIAP-consortium and does not feature concrete actions.
What is service innovation
Just like the cultural and creative industries, service innovation is considered a driver for change and innovation. ECIA will collaborate together with the European Institute for Service Innovation on the matter and will use the final report "Meeting the Challenge of Europe 2020: the transformative power of service innovation" from the Expert Panel on Service Innovation and the Smart Guide on Service Innovation as their main sources of inspiration.
