CER

The Creative Entrepreneuralism Runway

What is CER?

CER is a web-based platform for entrepreneurs, professionals, and aspirants to the Creative Industries. The growing diversity that is currently available in Europe is a very rich resource. If it is well-structured, organized and guided, it can make the Creative Industries an even more important path for economic growth, job creation, innovation, and inclusion. We believe that through sharing and collaboration, we can create an open space for everyone to discuss, advance and be inspired by creativity and entrepreneurship. Here you can find tools, articles, and inspiration in these fields. This space allows us to work together towards a sustainable society and entrepreneurial collaborations.

CER is the result of the collaborative project ”Diversity in the Creative Industries”. Originally started in cooperation with 2 other organizations, CER is now managed by SwIdeas. Diversity in the Creative Industries aimed to improve young people's, access to professional networks, improve career-oriented capacities, competencies and opportunities for young talents within the creative industries. This two-year project was funded by the Erasmus+ programme within the EU’s Strategic Framework Horizon 2020. CER serves mainly young people who have ideas for or previous experience from the cultural and creative industries and who are at an early stage of their career.

Diversity and uniqueness can easily turn into added value assets in the Creative Industries. For such reasons, they can be a path for people with diverse ethnic backgrounds, especially those who have a creative/cultural “seed” in their home environment, to be able to develop their talents and abilities.

Networking is a powerful tool for entrepreneurs, companies, and organizations. Being connected allows you greater access, eases the sharing of information, and helps you to build relationships with and influence the people that are relevant for you.
