KEA European Affairs ,
01 October 2006, Belgium

This study is a first at European level. It highlights the direct (in terms of GDP, growth and employment) as well as the indirect (links between creativity and innovation, links with the ICT sector, regional development and attractiveness) contribution of the cultural and creative sectors towards the Lisbon Agenda. Following an open invitation to tender, the European Commission selected KEA European Affairs to carry out this study.
