Ceramics and CRafts Industries' Increased Cooperation
Not logged user. Search:


The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.



Ceramics and traditional small crafts, referred to more and more in our days as creative industries are significant elements of our common European heritage. However, it has been an increasing challenge in the globalized world for Europe not only to preserve them, but to revive them as well, thus ensuring jobs and a living for all those involved.  

 This fact is the rationale behind CeRamICa – a project that has been formulated lead by the city of Hódmezővásárhely, a city that finds it a crucial task to preserve its almost 7,000 year old ceramics traditions. As mayor of this city I am very proud that have been trusted by our partners to act as Lead Partner of such a significant initiative, being thus also one of the first few Hungarian Lead Partners in interregional cooperation projects.  

Our project’s main objective is to find effective solutions and tools that can help creative industries, ceramics and small crafts in particular, become real economic driving forces of the respective local / regional economies in the 12 partner cities / areas and also beyond. These solutions and tools are better found jointly, in an interregional partnership, through sharing and exchanging knowledge and experiences of European cities or areas facing the same challenges.

Our joint aims have gained special importance in the light of 2009 being declared the European Year of Creativity and Innovation by the European Union. 

Ihope that as a result of CeRamICa we will all have newly born traditions viable within the frameworks of the 21st century and providing employment and income to our citizens.
