Incubator for creative firms in Rethymno, Crete
Central Crete's creative industry under development: objectives are set out for clusters and the 'creative economy'.
In November 2007, Rethymno's SME Park (VIO.PA) announced the creation of 'clinics' for creative firms. Following on from this, it is now focusing on the establishment of an incubator in the central Cretan area of the Park of the Municipality of Arkadio for the same business group. The area in question is known as the 'Creative Zone' and a great deal of emphasis is placed on the establishment of clusters in many fields, including those of advertisement, architecture, handicrafts, furniture, fashion, cinema and video, audiovisual production, free software, music, radio, TV, painting and publishing. The contribution of the 'creative economy' to the local development of Rethymno is also a focal point.
