The Creative Cross-Innovations for Sustainability project has conducted a small-scale benchmarking of creative cross-innovations in a global context, with analyses of results filtered to this policy brief. The initial benchmarking survey reached respondents in 49 countries in Europe and globally to locate creative cross-innovation developments on various continents. Additional interviews and discussion have been held as follow up to the survey and these have provided indications on different kinds of activity such as fundings, research, trainings and more. 

The aim of the project was to contribute to the knowledge gathering about the state of the practice, and by methodological piloting and development to support and encourage the emergence of new arts-based initiatives and cross-overs in the region. 

The Creative Cross-Innovations for Sustainability project is funded by Finland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs from the funding instrument of co-operation in the Baltic Sea, Barents with support from Ministry of Education and Culture Finland.
