ECCOM is a transdisciplinary organization created to promote the cultural and creative sector and support the needs of those who work in the cultural system.
Formed by the non-profit association ECCOM-European Center for Cultural Organization and Management and by the company ECCOM Progetti srl, ECCOM collaborates with public and private entities at a local, national and international level, and actively works with economists, archaeologists, art historians, sociologists, scientists, jurists and communication experts from different countries.
For ECCOM, culture has an active role in processes of social change and sustainability. Through its work, ECCOM studies and designs community experiences to generate innovation and cultural dialogue, promote participation in public life and promote cultural heritage as opportunities for personal and collective training and enrichment.
ECCOM has focused on these principles since 1995, executing innovative projects, training experiences and spaces for dialogue and discussion, employing different methodologies, tools and a plurality of artistic and cultural languages
