How can cultural and creative industries contribute to economic transformation through smart specialisation?
Cultural and creative industries are in a strategic position to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in all EU regions and cities. While some EU regions have been very good at tapping into this extraordinary potential as a way to promote socio-economic development - including through the use of EU Structural Funds -, it however appears that many others have not been making most of this potential.
The guide aims to illustrate how strategic regional public support can offer small and medium-sized enterprises a favourable environment and support them to better capitalise on service innovation in view of staying competitive in global value chains that include both manufacturing and services.
