KSIgune participates in various international initiatives that help to open up avenues of collaboration for the Basque cultural and creative ecosystem in the field of Higher Education and Research.



The Euroregional Green Audiovisual Hub (EGAH) is led by the KSIgune Cluster of Higher Education and Research for the Cultural and Creative Industries of the Basque Country, in collaboration with the Audiovisual Cluster of Navarre - CLAVNA, and Pôle Image Magelis.

EGAH is a project to connect the entire value chain of the audiovisual sector, through the networking of three agglutinative ecosystems that represent the interests of the sector in the territories of New Aquitaine, Basque Country and Navarre.

The project has been selected in the "Euroregional Innovation 2023" call of the Euroregion - NAEN, to contribute to the strengthening of the Euroregional business fabric.




In 2024 KSIgune and its ecosystem have been selected to be part of the Regional Skills Partnerhips, with the aim of supporting the training of transformative talent in the Basque Country, with a special focus on re-skilling and up-skilling for the digital era.

This milestone complements the participation of the cluster KSIgune within the Cultural and Creative Industries Strategy Group of the European Pact of Skills since 2023.

Joining a community of more than 100 European organisations and in coordination with the European Commission, KSIgune will contribute to promote a learning ecosystem that is relevant, accessible and affordable for professionals in the cultural and creative sector throughout their careers.
