Neelie Kroes impressed by Creative Ring-demo at ICT2013
At the ICT2013, Neelie Kroes, European Commissioner for Digital Agenda, deviated from her itinerary to watch the Creative Ring-demo.
There were 5 musicians in 3 different cities and one dancer in a 4th. The music was being live-mixed while a hologram of the dancer was being projected.
The Creative Ring links creative hubs in Barcelona, Brussels, Kortrijk, Trento and other cities. It offers ICT tools to enable the local creative industry to collaborate all across Europe.
It is an initiative started by Specifi, an EU-project, led by us and iLab.o.
Neelie Kroes was very impressed by the technology displayed at the event, as well as the cultural and economic value of this collaboration.
