Privacy Statement DISCE research project

By virtue of the Grant Agreement No 822314 of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, DISCE (an acronym for Developing Inclusive & Sustainable Creative Economies), is a project co-funded by the European Union, under the Horizon2020 Programme designed and managed under the responsibility of the University of Turku, with headquarters in 20500 Turku, Finland.

The DISCE Project aims to reassess the role of CCIs as contributors to growth, quality employment, competitiveness, and to the attractiveness and social cohesion of cities and regions across the EU. Through a multidisciplinary qualitative and quantitative approach, DISCE will work to

  • Develop more robust indicators of CCIs to facilitate a better and more comprehensive understanding of their performance and their contribution to economy and society, both at national and at EU level;
  • Provide tools for a better understanding of career perspectives, challenges and training needs of current and future creative workers across creative sectors, including a mapping of high education in the matter;
  • Explore inequality and exclusion in the CCIs, with the objective of gaining deeper insights into barriers and getting a clearer insight into enablers of new business models, innovations, employment and growth;
  • Promote a better understanding of both the labour markets and the entrepreneurship in CCIs, as well as the role of independent agents as a new disruptive force in their renewing in Europe;
  • Provide a new framework through which to examine and support the role of the CCIs in processes of ‘inclusive and sustainable growth’, understood not only as a contribution to GDP but also as cultural development and human flourishing.
