CLICKNL - For creative professionals and enterprising researchers

The creative industry is a driver of innovation. It delivers human-oriented solutions for societal challenges. To be able to continue to deliver that impact, CLICKNL, Top Consortium of the top sector Creative Industry, wants to enhance the creative professional's knowledge base. In doing so, we strengthen the sector and the innovative capacity of the Netherlands.

To that end, CLICKNL, together with experts from the creative industry and knowledge institutions, is drafting the Knowledge and Innovation Agenda for the Creative Industry. This agenda outlines what knowledge is needed to prepare the creative professional for the future and to which issues the professional can and must contribute.

Accordingly, different parties make resources available for research and innovation. CLICKNL itself also has the PPS grant at its disposal, which is used to fund, among others, field labs, for short-term industrial research.

Together with the research financer NWO and with the support of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, CLICKNL is building inspiration projects, the flag ships. They illustrate why R&D in the creative industry is important for the economy and society. And together with other top sectors such as energy and health, CLICKNL is building large programs. In doing so, CLICKNL focuses on fundamental and practice-oriented research and applications.

To share all knowledge, experience and inspiration, CLICKNL organizes events such as the Design Research & Innovation festival DRIVE and, together with organizations in the sector, smaller events.
