One of the main goals of the project "Joining Creativity" is establishing contacts among the representatives of creative industries from the North-West of Russia and Nordic countries. From 16th to 21st October a study trip to Finland and Sweden for representatives of creative industries took place. During the trip participants got a chance not only to learn more about creative industries and shared experience, but also look for new interesting ideas and useful contacts.
Representatives from Karelia, St. Petersburg, and Arkhangelsk took part in the trip. For 6 days they visited several universities, incubators and business-centers, large and small enterprises, and workshops of Helsinki, Umeå, Skellefteå, and Joensuu.
