“IN SITU – Place-based innovation of cultural and creative industries in non-urban areas”
The project “IN SITU – Place-based innovation of cultural and creative industries in non-urban areas” was launched on July 1, 2022, with a 48-month duration. The project is Coordinated by the Centre for Social Studies at the University of Coimbra, Portugal.
The project aims to contribute to increasing the capacity of cultural and creative industries (CCIs) to act as drivers of innovation, competitiveness, and sustainability in their local context. IN SITU seeks to provide in-depth knowledge on the effects of cross-sectoral connections, innovative strategies and systems, and the needs of CCIs’ practitioners in non-urban areas, complementing this with proposals for cultural and innovation policies and frameworks. IN SITU includes also capacity-building programme to enable CCIs to address some of the key issues in their communities/regions.
The core defining aspect of IN SITU is the interlinking of research and practice through place-based IN SITU Labs – hubs for networking, capacity building, and monitoring case studies in six non-urban regions across Europe, located in Portugal, Ireland, Iceland, Finland, Latvia, and Croatia.
The IN SITU project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 101061747.
