With the upcoming Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU 2021, the European Creative Business Network (ECBN) has invited the Centre for Creativity (CzK) and Creative Industries Styria to serve as co-organizers of the next annual European Creative Industries Summit (ECSI) during the Slovenian Presidency of the EU. ECIS conferences, which bring together some 200 participants from up to 20 countries, focus on policy makers, governance, cultural creative centres, researchers, educators and, above all, intermediaries and innovators from all sectors of the cultural and creative industries and the wider creative economy.


The forthcoming European Creative Industries Summit 2021 (# ECIS2021) will analyse the consequences of the current COVID-19 pandemic and examine the current state of European creative industries. The conference will also examine the needs and development in education and skills for creative professionals today. In addition, the conference will provide an overview of the relationship between the creative industries and the European Green Deal, as well as opportunities for business cooperation and collaboration.


The European Creative Industries Summit (ECIS) was set up in 2010 by the European Network of Creative Industries (ECBN) as a conference for creative professionals and intermediaries to discuss the situation in the European cultural and creative economy. Today, ECIS is the largest annual summit of cultural and creative industries (CCI), bringing together more than 200 European experts in the capital of the current EU Presidency. The conference aims to provide information on current developments in the CCI sector, as well as to find possible solutions and discuss European policy. The European Creative Industries Summit (ECIS) is an annual conference of the European creative economy dedicated to this sector, so ECSI, as a project manager, works with local organizations every year to organize this event in parallel with the EU Presidency.
