The entreprenuerial dimension of the cultural and creative industries

Following an open call for tender the European Commission entrusted a study on the Entrepreneurial Dimension of the Cultural and Creative Industriesto the Utrecht School of the Arts. The aim of this Study was to provide a better understanding of the operations and needs of companies in the Creative and Cultural Industries (CCIs), especially small and medium‐sized enterprises (SMEs). The intention was not to provide a comprehensive overview but rather to describe some of the problems and provide recommendations.  Throughout the Study, there are 40 case studies that illustrate key approaches and initiatives found in Appendix 1 and Appendix 2.
