The CREACT4MED Key Stakeholder Group meeting in Palestine took place virtually on 02 February 2022, with the presentation of Palestinian Business Support Organizations (BSO) and incubators. During this meeting, key stakeholders from the Palestinian CCI entrepreneurial ecosystem were engaged in the co-design of the CREACT4MED sub-granting and training schemes.
In addition to the call for incubators in Palestine, the CREACT4MED training program, the CRECAT4MED online training platform (developed by iED), and the CREACT4MED call for trainees and trainers were presented. As a result, participants provided valuable feedback about the calls and the training curricula that will allow us to better tailor the training materials to fit the Palestinian case. In this meeting, collaboration among all stakeholders was highlighted as an essential factor for building an enabling ecosystem for creative entrepreneurs.
The CREACT4MED Key Stakeholder Group meetings are organized under the “CREACT4MED CCI subgrating and training” led by EMEA and iED.
