3. Creative region Linz & Upper Austria

After ECBN and Peopling we present another of our partners in the Erasmus programme for young businesspeople. In neighbouring Austria there is an organization called Creative Region Linz&Upper Austria. It works mainly as a platform providing information and services for the development and promotion of creative industries. It connects the ideas and projects that strengthen the impact of creative industries in this area, in particular by linking them with the business environment. In 2014 Linz was awarded the title of UNESCO City of Media Arts, mainly due to Ars Electronica cultural centre, which annually hosts the festival of digital media of the same name. Certainly worth mentioning is also Tabakfabrik – a former tobacco factory which over time has been transformed into a centre of creative industry.
