Four actions - VINCI, 4CNW, FAD-IN and +Innova Creativity - will design and implement innovation voucher schemes to provide business support to Creative Industries' companies and will stimulate a greater uptake of Creative Industries services, capabilities and knowledge by other industries. Three of the vouchers schemes will support the demand for Creative Industries' services and will help traditional industries (i.e. domestic appliances, tourism and agri-food) to access such services and one scheme will offer business support services to creative industries.
At least 80 companies will benefit directly from innovation vouchers, with an average value of €5000 granted per voucher. These four actions will altogether involve business service providers and creative industries from 13 EU countries. The results of these pilot actions will feed into broader regional and national discussions on how future business support in general, and for creative industries in particular, should be planned and implemented in order to increase the innovation capacity and the value creation in creative industries and in those industries that are or could be directly benefiting from a close cooperation with creative industries.
