In the first half of 2012 the UCP project partners elaborated different concepts for coachings and mentoring offers for CCI entrepreneurs, for marketing and promotion of CCI in each UCP partner city and for the establishment of a local centre for cultural and creative industries in each city.

The work of the UCP project partners are accompanied by local cluster work groups which consist of local CCI entrepreneurs, cultural institutions, students etc. Meetings and workshops concerning different topics  which are related to the further development of CCI are held in the UCP cities. The cluster work groups are set up differently in the UCP cities - some cities established cluster work groups concerning different CCI branches, others have thematic work groups which focus on establishing joint projects among different CCI entrepreneurs.





Like in 2011 it is planned to have further events which involve CCI entrepreneurs from each partner city. The first international workshop in international marketing took place during the 2nd UCP public conference "Visions and Developments" in Tartu in March 2012 (Conference "Visions & Developments").

In total 12 entrepreneurs from various CCI branches took part in the workshop and used the opportunity to get to know the cultural scene and other CCI entrepreneurs from Tartu. Another workshop and exhibition is planned for the public conference in Linköping on September 12th and 13th 2012. This time the participants will be from the 3D/4D animation and visualisation companies. All cities have strong enterprises in this field so a more branch oriented visit including a tailor-made workshop for these entrepreneurs will be offered.
