Creating growth - Measuring cultural and creative markets in the EU

The study summarizes and builds upon available information on the economic scale of the cultural and creative sectors at both national and European levels. Though there have been many studies on the creative economy, a common definition only very recently been agreed.

The report includes:

• Comparative, qualitative and quantitative analyses aimed at understanding the economic role of the creative and cultural sectors in Europe

• Key factors that will affect the global evolution of creative and cultural sectors and players

• Ways by which creative and cultural activities can help encourage growth, youth employment and innovation and strengthen Europe’s position globally.

This work, carried out under the guidance of EY teams, has been a collective project, embracing the thoughts and contributions of GESAC and its partners for this study with the common aim of understanding and developing our cultural and creative industries.
