As part of a webinar series “Research doesn’t stop”, DISCE partner The Gran Sasso Science Institute is presenting a seminar “The Classification of Creative and Cultural Economies in the Era of Social Transformation. A Proposal for a New Taxonomy for the DISCE project”.
Developing Inclusive & Sustainable Creative Economies (DISCE) is an interdisciplinary, mixed-methods project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The overall research design combines case studies of the creative economies in ten European cities, in combination with analysis of pan-European. One of the central aims of the project is to use this combination of methods to conceptualize inclusive and sustainable creative economies, and to develop new approaches to statistical analyses, mapping and modelling of creative economies in Europe.
DISCE strongly highlights a need for an inclusive understanding of the sector. This takes a broad view of the creative economy that questions the models proposed so far at European and international level. Besides providing a descriptive profile of CCIs, based on the classical information such as Gross Value Added by Economic Sector, Input-Output tables, European Union Labour Force Survey, Structural Business Statistics (SBS), CCIs performance et similia, the work will cope with the complex issue of draw a classification of CCIs that might comprehend inclusivity and sustainability as key factors. In order to draw a CCIs taxonomy that might better match the DISCE project aims, project researchers have tried to focus on the perimeter of CCIs with strong policy implications able of measuring and comparing CCIs with other sectors. GSSI will present the first outcomes of the DISCE project and the proposal for a new taxonomy that might lead to a further awareness of the creative sectors and the creative workers highlighting their cross-sectoriality to build a competitive, inclusive and strong system at international level.
We invite you to join the discussion on ZOOM on Wednesday, June 23 at 10:00 (CET).
