The INTERNATIONALISATION ROADMAP consists of important steps, i.e. milestones, for the CCI intermediary organisations to reach. The aim is to increase intermediary organisations knowledge and skills about the internationalisation of the CCI and to give necessary tools to develop sustainable services for SMEs. During the Creative Ports project partners piloted different internationalisation tools and based on them we created internationalisation learning modules that you can see in the last milestone of the INTERNATIONALISATION ROADMAP below.
There are several different motives behind the internationalisation of CCI indicating a diversified approach to internationalization. One of the most frequent motives for CCI intermediary organisations is to build international networks and gain access to new and larger markets for their clients - CCI SMEs - in order to achieve their growth. The support measures that CCI intermediary organisations employ should strengthen CCI SMEs internationalisation and also meet the specific needs of CCI SMEs operating in the different cultural sectors.
What value and to whom you could provide? What is your institution value proposition for CCI SMEs to support their internationalisation or for your collaboration partners?
The increasing openness of markets means that institutions are tending to organise their processes and value chains in ‘global business designs’, and continually adapt their competencies to them, which means oﬀering added (creative) value becomes vitally important.
A key element in identifying partners is the “people'' issue. Successful collaborations are built on strong interpersonal relations and shared values between organisations and individuals.
