WLO has recently became part of the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) Culture & Creativity Policy Club, whose first annual Forum was held in Bilbao, Spain, on October 27, 2023.The EIT is a European Union body aimed at driving innovation bringing together organizations across business, education, and research. There is an ecosystem of partnership for each global challenge, called Knowledge and Innovation Communities. In this regard, the EIT Culture & Creativity would be the ecosystem aimed at bringing creatives from all walks of life together to rethink how the cultural and creative sectors and industries are currently run and to promote a green and digital transition.
The EIT Culture & Creativity Policy Club is a dynamic platform that harnesses the diverse competences, experiences, and backgrounds of its participants across various policy domains, departments, disciplines, and sectors. The Policy Club will be, in fact, the first long-term, fully actionable platform for peer learning and concrete delivering of innovations for coherent and cross-domain policies, frameworks, and regulations for the Cultural and Creative Sectors and Industries at the European level.
