Cultural and Creative Industries Economic Development and Urban Regeneration
International Conference | Rome, 4-5 December 2015
Call for Papers
The rise of awareness about the economic significance of creativity in a globalized world has gone hand in hand with the affirmation of the term ‘creative industries’, often used interchangeably to the term ‘cultural industries’.
Culture and creativity are considered key competitiveness drivers in the knowledge-based economy. They account for substantial shares of income and employment in developed countries and offer important opportunities to policy makers to raise local levels of urban quality and social well-being. These strengths are the basis for important potential contributions of cultural and creative industries to the ‘smart’, ‘inclusive’ and ‘sustainable’ growth that are placed at the core of Europe 2020 economic strategy.
The conference aims to promote the debate and the sharing of knowledge and experiences on research, policy and projects focusing on Cultural and Creative Industries.
