The halfway mark for European Year of Creativity and Innovation is nearly here and it is hard to see what has been achieved. Does setting aside a period of time really promote creativity??
Events such as EYCI 2009 and Australian Innovation Festival need to do much more than come up with new definitions and list events on their websites.
EYCI 2009 definition = "Creativity is a driver for innovation and a key factor for the development of personal, occupational, entrepreneurial and social competences and the well-being of all individuals in society."
