Join us to discuss the future of

Entrepreneurial Thinking and Acting in Creative Media Industries

Over the past few years universities, businesses and policy makers have recognised the importance of entrepreneurship and innovation as key skills needed to drive the economy. This also applies to the creative media industries. However, students and professionals in creative media industries are primary educated with a focus on creative thinking. Compared to this, business-related education in creative media industries is often very limited, e.g. with respect to the identification of market opportunities, entrepreneurial attitudes and innovation generation.


a major challenge exists in integrating creative thinking and acting with business and entrepreneurial thinking and acting

. This is not only true for the practice in creative media industries, but also for the education of students. Therefore, the CMB2015 event will bring together key stakeholders to share knowledge, develop skills and create new cooperation for further stimulating employability and business success in the creative media industries.

In order to provide straight forward and target-oriented discussions,

the number of participants is limited

. As we also aim to bring together stakeholders with diverse backgrounds in order to develop new ways of fostering entrepreneurial thinking and acting in creative media industries,

the event requires you to apply.

Application options are:
  • You apply for the event using the registration form (apply here)
