GoCI - Innovation accelerator for the Creative Industries

GoCI accelerates innovation in the creative industries. As a creative professional, do you want to know more about knowledge-driven research and development into opportunities for innovation, do you have an innovation need or are you looking for partners? Or are you as a researcher (from an (applied) university, or other knowledge institution) looking for SMEs in the creative industries to do research with? GoCI can help with that.

What is GoCI?
The creative industries are strong in multidisciplinary collaboration and have a lot to contribute to social challenges. GoCI wants to strengthen and accelerate innovation within the creative industries and, within the social challenges in the Mission-driven innovation policy, increase its impact. That is why we promote as much applied and practice-oriented research in and by the sector as possible.

We establish a network of entrepreneurs and researchers.
