Second, with the support by the European Commission’s Youth in ActionProgramme 100 young creative talents from all over Europe. The members of the Committee of the Regions would propose candidates from their constituencies. They might be artists, architects, designers, film makers, internet experts or others. What would qualify them should their attempt to be at the same time young entrepreneurs and to have contributed to a certain extent to the development of the local economy, for example by setting up their own businesses. Candidates are invited to send the application form by 31 January 2009.

The two-days’ programme of the Forum takes place in Brussels and would include a session presenting the academic debate and practical cases in the field of regional creativity and innovation, a networking session among the young creative talents, both on 20 April. All participants would be welcomed during a social event in the evening. During the morning of 21 April, creative and innovative projects from Belgium would be presented through guided bus tour in Brussels followed by a panel debate among representatives from the Brussels, Flemish and Walloon regions.
