  Welcome to CreaMed project!

The project and its nature

CreaMed is a transnational alliance of 11 partners from 8 countries aimed at fostering Creativity & Innovation in all Mediterranean regions at both public and private level, for ensuring regional Sustainable Development. The CreaMED Alliance encourages mutual policy learning, synergies and cooperation in order to constitute a framework for developing Regional Innovation Policies in the MED Area.

Our strategic goal is to align public Innovation Policies in the MED area for ensuring that their implementation is performed in accordance and coherence with EU priorities. The actions foreseen to be implemented are expected to boost the Mediterranean Industry and contribute to the consolidation of the European Knowledge Economy. To this end, a sound Alliance of key Mediterranean actors in the field of Innovation promotion has been brought together for transferring knowledge and methodologies about Creativity & Innovation among public and private bodies. The reinforcement of the MED business innovation potential will contribute to the growth, prosperity and sustainability of the regions, leading in the long-term the business – and particularly the SMEs – at the forefront of EU in terms of competitiveness.
