On the occasion of the final event of the Chebec project organized in Lyon by Arty Farty with the support of the AMI, the beneficiaries of the innovative vouchers produced videos presenting their activity and its evolution following the implementation of this device.
The program provided innovation vouchers as an additional support for the development of joint initiatives as a result of the international activities carried out previously, with the goal of further developing them (support to cover travels, consultancies or other expenses), according to an innovative methodology, that has taken into account the overall results of the services tested by the beneficiaries.
THE OBJECTIVES :
- funding specific activities related to internationalization (and innovation) implemented by CCIs companies and professionals ;
- testing and assessing an implementation mechanism of the vouchers and developing a routine to fund “innovation vouchers” that may be used in other contexts.
The impacts of the current crisis on the Chebec beneficiaries are similar to those being faced by other agents in the cultural sector: cancellations or postponement of events, reduction or cancellation of orders, closure of spaces and workshops, impacts on suppliers, etc. This crisis has worsened the already fragile and precarious situation of the cultural sectors, and it was particularly relevant to take into account how this device has proven to be useful in adapting.
