Trans Europe Halles has joined a consortium, led by the University of Turku (Finland), in a three-year-long research project intended to reshape the economic and social perception of the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs). The DISCE Project (an acronym for Developing Inclusive & Sustainable Creative Economies), funded by the European Commission under the Horizon2020 Programme, aims to reassess the role of CCIs as contributors to growth, quality employment, competitiveness, and to the attractiveness and social cohesion of cities and regions across the EU.
