Healthier ageing, sustainable energy, economical use of natural and raw materials, a safe environment, sufficient clean water and an emission-free public transport. As a creative industry, we have the responsibility to contribute to this. As the missions are coming up, this is the moment to show the design power of the sector! With the opportunity we offer at CHARGE, we're already getting started.

I'll be there

The entire event CHARGE will be in Dutch
At our year event CHARGE we give you an introduction to the mission themes of the mission-driven innovation policy. After that, we move on to real opportunities: we will launch IDOLS*, Increasing Demand by Offering LearningS, a brand new programme from the Federation Creative Industries. And you, as a creative or cultural professional, can join!

Researchers, creative, cultural and other companies get the chance to meet clients with real social issues, and to subscribe for the consortia within these projects, with budgets that go to 100k! A great opportunity, so you can walk ahead with us the next few years.

You as a professional and we as a sector will gain indispensable experience within the project: together as a consortium on social issues and for various clients. Besides that, clients are coached in their engagement with the creative and cultural sector. At the end of this, we will have some nice examples of the value of the creative and cultural sector, major social issues and we will become experiential!
