The European Commission launches €1.5 million experimental call for proposals to design innovative interdisciplinary modules for Master degrees, combining arts and ICT with entrepreneurial skills and business exposure. Creative industries are experiencing a significant skills gap at the crossing of creativity and technology. This action, provided by Creative Europe, aims to promote an interdisciplinary approach in masters and university courses by fostering cross-sectorial curricula combining technology with Arts. The action will be implemented through the design and implementation of innovative modules that will be included in existing arts, culture, science, engineering, technology and/or other relevant masters. The modules should be designed with a view to: 1) equipping students in arts and creativity, business and technology with the knowledge and core transferable competences they need to work across cultural and creative sectors and disciplines; 2) improving the quality and relevance of teaching and learning in arts and culture disciplines by linking creativity, business and technology; 3) developing an entrepreneurial culture among the students and the teaching staff; 4) stimulating innovative learning environments within and across disciplines through the integration of creative, digital and entrepreneurial education. Applicants shall form a consortium of at least one higher education institution and two partner organisations. The coordinator of the application must be a higher education institution, established in an eligible country (28 Member States of the European Union ; EFTA/EEA countries: Iceland and Norway), which designs and runs master programmes.
