The N.I.C.E. Award 2015 theme: Solving the World’s Major Challenges - A Call for Innovations

The 2015 award challenges the cultural and creative sectors to propose surprising and experimental innovations that are solutions to difficult global problems with special, but not exclusive, attention given to digital innovations.

The Network for Innovations in Culture and Creativity in Europe (N.I.C.E.) was initiated in 2013 by a consortium of 15 cities, universities, agencies and personalities from 10 countries under the leadership of the european centre for creative economy (ECCE) in Dortmund. It is a non-profit initiative funded by the Ministry for Families, Children, Youth, Culture and Sports of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

The yearly N.I.C.E. Award and traveling exhibition, funded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Energy and Industry of North Rhine-Westphalia and the cities of Bochum, Dortmund, Essen and Gelsenkirchen, aims to promote innovations from the cultural creative sectors especially those that spill over into the wider economy and society. The winners are decided by an independent jury consisting of Charles Landry (Comedia, UK), Arantxa Mendiharat (Conexiones improbables, Spain), Prof. Kurt Mehnert (Folkwang University of the Arts, Germany), Barbara Abel (AbelundAbel, Austria) and Jarmo Eskelinen (Forum Virium Helsinki, Finland).
