projekt CreativeWear

V Etri skupnosti (natančneje Allium z.o.o., so.p.) smo partnerji v mednarodnem projektu programa Interreg Mediteran, z naslovom CreativeWear. Namem samega projekta je povečati delež tekstilne industrije v Evropi, ob tem pa spodbutu tehnološki razvoj panoge, družbeno odgovornost in ergonomijo. Etri skupnost v sklopu partnersta v projektu izvaja aktivnosti v slovenskem pilotu, ki se imenuje COF in ima sedež v Metliki. Kratica COF pomeni creative coworking factory. Tehnični podatki projekta, pa so zapisani spodaj.

CreativeWear revitalizes the crisis-ridden Textile & Clothing (T&C) sector through a new attention to creativity, personalised design, and artisan and small-scale production for territorially specific value chains in customer-driven business models.CreativeWear extends the on-going TCBL project, which complements techno-industrial with social innovation to return 5% of capacity to Europe and attain a 20% reductionin environmental impact by 2025, to creative clusters in the MED space, integrating them into the broader TCBL ecosystem. CreativeWear aims both to recover and valorise the design heritage and tacit “making” knowledge of T&C in Mediterranean cultures (MED-Texmedin) and to bring new energy to creative T&C clusters by reinforcing their creativity-based innovation capacity and integrating their activity into emergent transnational value chains (CreativeMED).

CreativeWear tests adaptation of the H2020-TCBL network model (which couples Design, Making, and Place Labs with Business Pilots in innovative business model scenarios) to existing creative clusters such as museums, creative hubs, fashion schools, design centres, volunteer organisations, etc. Testing in CreativeWear unfolds across months 15-41 of the 48-month H2020-TCBL project, perfectly aligning the testing and development of the complementary approaches. The transferrable CreativeWear model thus allows for greater coherence with ERDF and ESF policy frameworks in different national and regional contexts.

CreativeWear starts from a robust baseline formed by MED-Texmedin, which explored the role of Mediterranean cultural heritage as an inspiration for fashion design, and MED-CreativeMED, which formulated and tested a Mediterranean model of innovation (based on creativity and social innovation) through the Capitalisation of 6 MED projects including Texmedin.

In addition, the TCBL project provides the starting operational framework for the Business Labs and Pilots, and by the time the CreativeWear project starts the TCBL project will have already launched the first of three cycles of experimentation. As a 25-month Module 2 project, the initial activity of Preliminary Studies is thus sufficient to begin experimentation in the 6 T&C clusters represented by the project partners: Prato, Sicily, Valencia, North-eastern Slovenia and Athens. The testing first involves adaptation and experimentation of the tools and methods developed in TCBL to the creative cluster approach, as appropriate, and the development of the transnational network in the MED space. The second cycle of testing, which unfolds in parallel with the Transfer WP, consolidates the CreativeWear model for integration into the Europe-wide TCBL ecosystem (scaling up) as well as reinforcing the network across the MED space (scaling out). To this end, CreativeWear will itself launch a Call for Expressions of Interest for the incorporation of new Mediterranean clusters into the network, in a similar manner as the 4 Calls for EoI that the TCBL project will use to extend its ecosystem to include at least 90 Business Labs and 240 Business Pilots. Upon project conclusion, it will become clearer whether a capitalisation process specific to the MED programme is required or whether the final months of the TCBL project will be sufficient to consolidate results, spread the message, and mainstream the TCBL model into regional innovation policy.
