The foundation consists of, among other things, the following:
- Local and regional governments that have secured their policies and administrative principles in the creative industry and have made the necessary resources available.
- Knowledge institutions, such as the HKU, HvU and UU that play central roles in the creative sector and actively cooperate in establishing stronger cross-connections between knowledge institutions and enterprise.
- The availability of networks in the creative industry: U-Design, Utrecht CS and Cultureel MKB Utrecht (Cultural Small and Medium-size Enterprise (SME) in Utrecht)
- An extensive number of initiatives.
These initiatives are:
- The Kunstgras event
- The CMKBU Programme that provides support for start-up creative enterprises
- CUBE, an incubator with a strong emphasis on start-ups in design, technology and communication
- The Crossmedia Experience Lab (CEL) of the Faculty of Communication and Journalism at Hogeschool Utrecht
- Utrecht Manifest, a large-scale international event with international exposure in the field of research and discussion related to the creative industry
- Utrecht Design, a programme in which knowledge institutions (lecturers and students) collaborate in 20 projects in the field of Design
- A wide range of initiatives around 'Game Valley Utrecht', such as the annual Dutch Game Days (Nederlandse Gamedagen), the Dutch Game Factory, Gameplay and the Center for Advanced Gaming and Simulation (AGS) that are organised in Utrecht.
Utrecht wishes to further consolidate its creative foundations, which is the reason why it supports the CCAA project. The municipality intends to work with the CCAA to create a platform for Utrecht-based creative enterprises, a platform where the creative industry can appeal to coaching, counselling and support by professionals and based on which they can expand their (inter) national networks.
