In order to implement the overall project "Competence Centers for Creativity" with EU fundings, a detailed project preparation is necessary, which is to be conducted as a START project. The START goal is to prepare the project idea to a fundable project concept, incl. implementing a feasibility study, preparing the project concept, the budget plan, researching available funding possibilities (e.g. Danube programme) and thus a complete application for an EU-funding programme.The implementation of the START project activities should lead to the following results/outcomes:1. A detailed project concept and budget plan for the establishment of Danube Competence Centres for Creativity and Entrepreneurship and their linking into a viable Network;2. Having established a network of at least 15 stakeholders per participating country from the target groups in the preparation process through consultation workshops to discuss their roles within the concept of operation of the Competence Centres;3. As a follow-up, after the START completion: the project proposal for the implementation of Competence centres (including the documents that have been developped with the help of the START fund) should be submitted for funding. Achievements: Within the Working Group various practices have been identified. They need to be systematically and consistently taken into account while developing new initiatives. The needs identified by the countries of the Working Group related to creativity and entrepreneurship include:1) Bringing creativity closer to entrepreneurial education and training; 2) Bringing education closer to businesses; 3) Supporting continuous education and training for SMes, creative industries and greener businesses. Thus the partners discussed the possibility for establishing danube Competence Centres for Creativity and entrepreneurship that will represent a network for exchange of practices, transfer of approaches to foster creativity and ntrepreneurship, development of new curricula or trainings, advice and research on emerging industries and anticipating necessary skills for the future.
