Report #ECIS 2015: “A forward looking EU Strategy on Culture and Creativity”

Preliminary report of the the European Creative Industries Summit 2015 that was held in Brussels. A full report will follow in a few weeks on our website.

More than twenty speakers among them the European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth & Sport, Tibor Navracsics, attended the European Creative Industries Summit (ECIS) on Monday, 11th of May, in Brussels. As its title“The Cultural Creative Entrepreneur in the 21st Century” suggests, the summit dealt with the many ways culture and creativity can find “a European answer fueled by European values” (Dieter Gorny, Special Advisor for Creative and Digital Economy to the Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, Germany, in his keynote) to the digital and global challenges of our time. Thereby Gorny referred to what the EU Commissioner had stressed before: “The cultural and creative sectors have shown great resilience during the crisis – they actually continued to grow – while stimulating creativity and innovation spill-overs in other sectors.”
