The CYANOTYPES project brings together a wide variety of organisations, stakeholders and European networks to address the needs and skills gaps in the Cultural & Creative Industries (CCI). It aims to boost the provision of new skills and address skills mismatches by designing and creating new curricula for higher education (HE) and vocational education and training (VET), supporting the development of a sense of initiative and entrepreneurial mind-sets in the EU.
Based on the triple loop learning framework, CYANOTYPES devotes its attention to how we learn "how to learn" by tackling the sector's potential for innovation and competitiveness. In doing so it confronts the challenge presented by a post-pandemic recovery, the digital transition, and the green shift.
