Since May 2015, through NUMEDIART and HUMANORG, UMONS has been in charge of DigiSTORM, a portfolio of ERDF projects co-funded by the European Union and the Région wallonne.

The objective of this portfolio is to develop relationships and collaborations between companies, R&D centres and higher education institutions, particularly through launching the Creative Industries Living Lab in Wallonia, in order to encourage the creation of ICC businesses (Creative and Cultural Industries) and the development of existing economic entities.
