Next project's event News and external events

The Sha.p.e.s. project focuses on the excellences of the Creative Economy in the Mediterranean. This area has the highest concentration of appreciated talents, brands and know-how worldwide. The creative asset directly or indirectly produces cultural products and includes not only commercial, manufacturing or service enterprises but also artists, public and non-profit organizations – all dealing with creativeness and excellence. For this reason, Sha.p.e.s. deals also with the “governance” theme. In fact, the so-called creative cluster cuts across multiple economic and institutional sectors and competences, and does not constitute a cohesive sector in the traditional sense of a productive cluster.
