CREACT4MED project builds on the research work conducted by the Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association (EMEA) and the Euro-Mediterranean Network for Economic Studies (EMNES) in the past years on emerging socio-economic trends, challenges and needs in order to develop a renewed vision of socio-economic development in the South Neighbourhood Countries (SNCs).
The overall objective of CREACT4MED is to enhance the role of culture and creativity as a vector for employment and resilience in the SNCs through untapping the potential of the cultural and creative industry (CCI) to create economic value, enhance growth, create decent jobs and foster social inclusion. In doing so, a special emphasis is dedicated to youth and women. The CREACT4MED project is co-funded by the European Union under the EuropeAid Programme and by the Project Partners. It is coordinated by the Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association – EMEA.
