As part of a study on the role of public policies in developing entrepreneurship and the innovative potential of the cultural and creative sectors, a report by the OMC (open method of coordination) working group of Member States’ experts has recognised the methodology of Conexiones improbables as a good practice example in its section on “Inspiring user-driven and co-creation policy examples”.
The report examines 5 areas (frame, structures, cooperation, users and territory) and only mentions 3 state initiatives as examples of good practices: Conexiones improbables, Barcelona Laboratori (in the same section on users) and Barcelona Arts Factories (in the chapter on territory), as well as Factoría Cultural in Madrid (as part of the European Creative Hubs Network). This places the Basque platform at the forefront of developing cultural innovation methodologies and brings it to the same level as other public or private initiatives in countries such as Finland, Norway, Holland, Germany or Austria.
