Distretto Produttivo Puglia Creativa – Creative Apulia Productive District
From 2015 the Euro-Mediterranean Cultural Heritage Agency is a member of the “Distretto Produttivo Puglia Creativa – (Creative Apulia Productive District)“.The District is the expression of cultural and creative businesses from Puglia, in response to the Regional Law n. 23/2007. In the first months of operation the district has been working on drafting a three-year development plan and started its action in a bottom-up process aimed at the involvement of business and to work in networks.
The institutional task of the District is to coordinate the regional policies for the business support with the needs and objectives of strengthening depending on the cultural and creative activities. The main areas are those of innovation, internationalization and training. The District aims at the realization of a cooperation system between companies that generate material benefits and affirms the creative sector as an engine of innovation and change throughout the regional economy. The association’s partners are: universities, employers ‘and workers‘ organizations, governments and chambers of commerce.
The District intends to launch a series of institutional interlocutions to carry out its mandate relating to development policies, enhancing the system at local institutional, national and European level, but also focusing on the orientation and strengthening of creative activities in the community and with the younger generations. The District Apulia Creative wants it to be a reference point for young companies in start up, for professionals (young and old) who risk to be excluded from EU funds financing. The association is also working for the direct involvement of companies in the exchange of services as well as of professional experience initiatives
