Διεθνή Πρωτοβουλία  Collaborations in a Challenging World (Συνεργασίες σε ένα κόσμο γεμάτο προκλήσεις)

Πρόκειται για μια πρωτοβουλία συνεργασίας και αλληλεπίδρασης μεταξύ εκπροσώπων εμπειρογνωμόνων και οργανισμών διαφορετικών αλλά συμπληρωματικών διεθνών έργων, μια ιδέα που ξεκίνησε πριν από μερικούς μήνες έπειτα από το προγραμματισμό δράσεων ταυτόχρονα στην Αθήνα κατά τη διάρκεια των εκδηλώσεων της ΕΓΜ 2018.

Πρόκειται για μια κοινή πρωτοβουλία αξιοποίησης & κεφαλαιοποίησης μεταξύ αλληλοσυνδεόμενων έργων, που ενεργοποιούνται σε θέματα Πολιτιστικής επιχειρηματικότητας, ανθεκτικότητας (resilience), Δημιουργικής Οικονομίας, καινοτομίας και αειφόρος ανάπτυξη και την κοινωνική ένταξη.

Αξιοποιώντας τις ευκαιρίες δικτύωσης των εκδηλώσεων της Ευρωπαϊκής Ημέρας Μουσικής, οι εταίροι της ΑΜΚΕ MESO και των δικτύων / προγραμμάτων ΣYMANSIS (Global Research Fund),  CCLEP (Erasmus +), NIMPE MUSIC FACTORY (Creative Europe) καθώς και οι εκπρόσωποι  ελληνικών φορέων και δικτύων διαφορετικών των κλάδων της Πολιτιστικής και Δημιουργικής Βιομηχανίας  (λίστα παρακάτω) θα συναντηθούν στην Ελλάδα και πιο συγκεκριμένα στο Κέντρο Καινοτομίας και Επιχειρηματικότητας Innovathens της Τεχνόπολις του Δήμου Αθηναίων στις 22 και 24 Ιουνίου 2018.
