Brussels Creative in Action
To fund cross-over innovation Brussels Creative is positioning the region and its ecosystem in European Calls providing the opportunity for project leaders to submit their ideas under the umbrella of Brussels. OrganiCity and WEARsustain were two great examples in 2017 but also Hack-my-Bike organized for the Brussels Region.
In 2018-2019 more Regional and European calls will be explored as well as Corporates looking for disruptive creatives to reinvent their organisations, products and services.

Mapping Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Brussels Region
To organize a local ecosystem and move towards a model known as an Ecosystem-as-a-Service, you have to map within your Region the stakeholders understanding who does what and who collaborates with whom. Together with the Creative Ring partner We Connect Data, specialized in data intelligence, we’ve developed a first map identifying and profiling more than 500 projects, communities, companies, associations, leaders, institutions, authorities and believers of cross-over innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship. The work is never finished as it’s a living ecosystem but it’s a starting point to drive a large initiative at the level of the entire city or region.
