Abstract: Urban regeneration is a common challenge especially for post-industrial cities. Cultural and creative entrepreneurship is one possible option since culture-led urban development is a sustainable approach, involving different types of communities, increasing social cohesion, and cultural dynamism. The paper aims to understand how knowledge exchange is connected to social innovation and urban regeneration, analysing several situations in Romania. Several dimensions are considered, such as the role of the policy framework and public administration, the dynamics of the relationship between the actors involved, knowledge sharing processes, innovation drivers and the impact of cultural and creative initiatives on the urban, physical and mental fabric.
Keywords: cultural entrepreneurship; knowledge sharing; culture-led urban regeneration; Romania.
