CreativeCH aims to strengthen the cooperation and mutual innovation between institutions in the field of digital cultural heritage, Science and SMEs from the creative industries and demonstrate how these sectors can benefit from each other not only from the economic perspective but also content wise. To promote this collaboration 4 local showcases will be developed in the partner regions, in which science and technology, institutions of the digital cultural heritage as well as creative industries will cooperate together to outline the economic benefit of cultural heritage (e.g. tourism, hotspot for smaller cities etc.) for a region / city.

To make cultural heritage more attractive for young people students will be involved in the realization of the local showcases in the partner regions. For this reason a close relationship with universities will be established.

Parallel to that an open European peer-learning network will be set up which will link experts, practitioners and students active in the field of cultural heritage offering them the opportunity to targeted exchange their expertise and knowledge.

Within the framework of a series of 10 international workshops the consolidated and existing experiences will be transferred to and discussed with actors from science and technology, cultural heritage and creative industries.
