EIT Culture & Creativity held its first in-person partner meeting on the 18 and 19 November on the premises of the Cologne Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK Cologne).

More than 150 participants from about 65 founding partner organisations took part. The opening remarks by Dr. Christian Ehler, Member of European Parliament, and Dr. Jens Brandenburg, State Secretary to the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, set the scope for the new KIC’s ambitions and actions for the coming years.

During the meeting, participants were able to exchange ideas on the future of the Innovation Community, including the green, digital, and social transformation of Europe. These principles will be embedded in EIT Culture & Creativity’s first open call for proposals for education, innovation, business creation, and social innovation initiatives planned for February 2023.
