Meet the consortium partners and find out why we expect the results will be so outstanding!
Creative Digital Transformation is a project born from the concerns and inquietudes of some partners who identified the need to help providers of cultural, touristic, and educational activities be able to sustain and capitalize their business and be competent in the labour market. Due to COVID pandemic, partners detected common needs in their communities, such as the incapacity to adapt to the new labour market paradigm of some sectors, a generalized lack of digital skills of workers in the cultural, touristic and educational sectors, or a lack of the creative skills to develop original and attractive offers and activities, and an effective promotion strategy in their sectors. Thus, they all decided to work together to address such needs.
The partnership is formed by 6 organisation from 5 European countries and an international network with previous experience in initiatives targeting professionals in the creative industries, education, cultural and touristic sectors, with teams that have skills and knowledge complementary to other partners’ profiles; and who have relevant activity at a local level.
Creative Digital Transformation is formed by 2 organisations from Germany (ITKAM & Wisamar), 1 from Spain (DomSpain), 1 from Romania (Bucovina Institute), 1 from Italy (MateraHub) ,1 from Estonia (Creative Estonia) and the international network Let Her In. Partners don’t only cover a good geographical distribution and complementation of expertise, but also all project sectors: education and training (DomSpain, Wisamar, Bucovina Inst.), internationalization and networking (Let Her In), creative Industries (Materahub, Creative Estonia); business, commerce and tourism (ITKAM, DomSpain, Bucovina Inst.); culture and art management (Creative Estonia) and business development (ITKAM, Creative Estonia, Bucovina Inst.).
