Creative Med Model

The Creative MED White Paper sets forth a ‘Mediterranean model of innovation’ that builds on the results of previous transnational innovation initiatives and has been validated through interaction with policy makers, experts, and local actors in 12 Mediterranean regions and applied to on-going processes for the definition of regional innovation strategies for the 2014-2020 programming period.

Creative MED White Paper


May 2014 - December 2014

From May 2014 until December 2014, Creative MED partnership identified high levels of motivation, creativity and innovation in different relevant actors, including public administrations, operators, small and medium entrepreneurs and the general public. Those elements are shaped through the publication of the Creative MED White Paper and Toolkit, paving the way for the implementation of a common innovation space in the Mediterranean area.
