Dear readers,

In this 16th issue of KNOW-HUB's newsletter, we focus on our German consortium partner Weser-Ems' progress in establishing a RIS. This newsletter also highlights the changes in the EU Cohesion Policy Regulation, especially the ones related to smart specialisation and synergies between the "European Structural and Investment Funds" and Horizon2020 and other EU programmes.

The consortium has been working hard on the KNOW-HUB wiki, and we're proud to present you some new contributions by experts such as Daniel Kipp, Guillermo Aleixandre and Christian Saublens.

The KNOW-HUB team hopes you enjoy this newsletter and will continue to read through further issues and forward them to anyone you know who may be interested.

In many cities and regions CCIs have a significant impact on smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. In the EU cultural and creative sectors account for 3.3 % of GDP and employ 6.7 million people (3 % of total employment). Because of a high rate of self-employed people in cultural and creative industries the number of workers is even higher. Due to these facts the strengthening and support of CCIs form a central part of smart specialisation strategies on local, regional and national levels, also in rural areas.
