Content and digital innovation in a multi-platform world - under this title we had our successful event hosted by CEPI during the Monte Carlo film Festival. In the mean time a detailed summary, including an overview of "Key Takeaways" became available! Jan Vermoesen, director of mediarte spoke about new skills.
The workforce is extremely young but at the same time multi-skilled: therefore, I encourage to strenghten links between high educational institutions and industry and on-the-job learning possibilities.
- Entertainment, story-telling and high quality content to lead the way with disruptive technology applied as an asset
- Technology to be instrumental to foster new industry approaches and to innovate the users’ experiences
- Crucial role that media and creative industries can play in both the EU Funding Programmes Horizon Europe and Digital Europe, boosting creativity and innovation, to be highlighted
- Areas such as AI, virtual reality, audience/community building to be strengthened by key R&D tools and media Innovation hubs for European excellence and knowhow sharing
- Talent and skills in the audio-visual sector to be incentivised by technological means and optimised in constant synergy amongst key stakeholders, academics and research tanks
- Innovation to play a fundamental role if applied with a holistic approach, combining investment in the ICT sector and in the creative and media sector
- Networking systems, media hubs and the development of creative/media clusters to be supported, for start-ups, SMEs and media companies to cooperate and create successful models to be competitive in Europe and beyond
