The Creative Economy has become a strategic asset for innovative job creation around the world. Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) represent nearly 30 million jobs worldwide and are major drivers of the economies of developed as well as developing countries (UNESCO). CCI contributed as much as 7% to the global GDP and was estimated to be around the 10% of the GDP in the MENA Region (World Bank 2017). In the CCI (mainly architecture, design and photography), there were 1.2 million cultural enterprises, generating 193 billion EUR of value added in the EU. It is a growing and promising industry that became strategic, not only because of its impact on employment creation, but also due to its influence on societies’ creativity and social cohesion.

CREACT4MED is an EU Project funded by the EuropeAid Programme and is focused on strengthening CCI businesses and job creation, giving support to entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs in particular, and targeting young people and women in the Southern Neighbourhood of the European Union.

Budget: 2,220,675 € EUR, Funded by the EU Commission (90%)
Timeline of implementation: March 2020 - February 2024
