Regional Creative Economy Centre (RCKE) was established within the Regional Development Agency of Ljubljana Urban Region (RDA LUR) in the context of an Interreg Central Europe project Creative Cities. It is still mainly funded through different EU projects, but partially also by RDA LUR. The main aim of RCKE is to train and connect creative individuals from creative industries with companies in other industries, thus creating conditions for achieving business successes based on multidisciplinary development processes.
As a part of the regional development agency, RCKE plays an important role in the policy making process, particularly in relation to creative sector. Ljubljana Urban Region is a national front runner in terms of the creative sector share and RCKE is a leading institution promoting the creative sector at the national level. At the regional level, RDA LUR is in charge of preparation of the Regional Development Programme 2014 2020, which is the basis for implementation of projects, where creative industries have been given an important role. Their engagement at the international level presents the active approach in policy making process as they are a member of different working groups and initiatives.
