This is a key opportunity for companies that want to pursue their business while giving special attention to environmental sustainability.

The adoption of Circular Economy procedures within the Cultural & Creative Industries will certainly improve waste management thanks to technology and the transfer of innovative knowledge, thus transforming Mediterranean cities into more resilient territories. The implementation of these procedures should promote employment contracts of scientific experts and technical staff. The entities that will access to the INNOMED-UP Info Point will benefit from cluster opportunities and innovation vouchers in order to get equipment and mentoring in their development.
