Both the process and the actual results of the specific pioneering projects were discussed by the artists, entrepreneurs and employees of the companies.
In the final discussion Sabine Denis, adviser of the minister of economy and innovation Ceysens, Stefaan De Clerck, Mayor of Kortrijk and Julie Vandenbroucke, president of Arteconomy explained what the future policy would be like.
