Study on the Entrepreneurial Dimension of the Cultural and Creative Industries

27 NOVEMBER 2012

This study, commissioned by the European Commission, responds to the growing importance of the creative economy, and more specifically of the role of the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs), as tools to tackle Europe’s current and future challenges.

The aim of this study is to provide a better understanding of the operations and needs of companies in the CCIs, especially small and medium?sized enterprises (SMEs). The intention is not to provide a comprehensive overview but rather to describe some of the problems and provide recommendations.

The study highlights transversal problems common to all these CCIs. It indicates specific challenges that could hamper entrepreneurship and prevent CCIs from benefiting from the internal market and the digital shift.
