INNOMED-UP Strategic Context Report
The INNOMED-UP project tackles the production of waste in Mediterranean Cities by helping them adopt Circular Economy (CE) solutions. In particular, the project proposes to work with the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs) to shift local urban economies towards a circular production and consumption paradigm (optimal use of material resources, innovation enhancement for SMEs, knowledge transfer among Med-cities, social inclusion and citizens’ engagement).
The present Report provides an extensive review on CCIs, as well as existing policies and synergies between CE and CCIs at Mediterranean and EU level.
