The pan-European consortium European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) Culture & Creativity appointed dr. Trilce Navarrete as one of the eight interim directors for their action programmes in the fields of education, creation, innovation, systems, and society. These programmes will contribute to the overall aim of EIT Culture & Creativity to house a sustainable ecosystem for European Cultural and Creative Sectors and Industries connecting and collaborating 50 partners from 20 countries across Europe.
Dr. Trilce Navarrete is interim director of the action programme ‘Community Catalyser’. The Action Programme will support CCSI-driven innovation projects bridging communities, reducing inequalities, and strengthening social cohesion in Europe. Operating at different levels (European, regional, local) and environments (urban, suburban and rural areas), these will contribute to lowering barriers related to accessibility to cultural amenities, services or contents; and empowering individuals and communities at risk of exclusion to lead and actively participate in CCSI initiatives with positive impact on their lives and on the place they live in.
