2020-1-DE02-KA227-ADU-008153

Description of the Project

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed that many sectors are not prepared for the current digital area. Although digital technologies have been introduced to our societies at a gradual and slow pace, many do not seem to have been adapting to them at a similar pace, and the sudden stop of offline and face-to-face life has caught them by surprise.

Over the last months, our society has realised how important culture is for our personal well-being and for the society as a whole. Creative Industries have been able to connect people with themselves and with each other and have been able to keep people motivated, inspired and willing to transform their new realities.

In a world where we are all fighting for a place in the market, only the most creative and innovative will achieve their goals. Thus, the project aims to reinforce adults’ professional competences and skills in all aspects related to creativity, to accelerate the transformation of their professional activities, to inspire them to do it creatively and to help them manage and disseminate them in a successful and effective way.

The Creative Digital Transformation project will accelerate digital transformation of entities, SMEs and organisations in the target sectors (creative industries, culture and tourism, and education) via creative and innovative solutions, by strengthening their workers’ competences, and by reinforcing the cooperation and networking within them.

Direct target groups

  • Professionals: educators, touristic and cultural workers and professionals from Creative Industries
  • Managers: directors and representatives of the educational, cultural/touristic sectors and Creative Industries.
