Towards an integrated vision for the European Digital Media Sector

Towards an integrated vision for the European Digital Media Sector

For the European Commission (DG CNECT)

This new research paper aims to provide a mapping of existing EU programmes accessible to the audiovisual (AV) sector beyond Creative Europe. This new research paper provides a timely contribution to the debates on the next EU Multiannual Financial Framework and future EU support programmes (2021-2027). The research aims at providing recommendations and concrete proposals on how to achieve synergies amongst the different EU funding instruments in order to address the development of the AV sector.

Mapping the Creative Value Chains

Mapping the Creative Value Chains

For the European Commission (DG EAC)

The study is a follow up to KEA’s groundbreaking 2006 research on the Economy of Culture in Europe which assessed the economic and social importance of the Culture sector for the first time at EU level. It looks at the impact of the digital revolution on the different creative value chains (visual arts, performing arts, cultural heritage, artistic crafts, book publishing, music, film, TV and broadcasting as well as multimedia). This study analyses how value is created and distributed within each cultural and creative sector, from the conception to the commercialisation of cultural goods and services.

How to improve data acollection and analysis in the cultural and creative sectors

How to improve data acollection and analysis in the cultural and creative sectors

For the European Commission (DG EAC)

The research addresses the fact that the economic and social value of the CCS remains largely underestimated. The statistical codes developed since the 1950s are often not adapted to capture the creative and immaterial economy. Therefore, this study identifies alternative data sources with a view to complement official statistics. It calls on the European institutions to work with trade organisations, cultural bodies and institutions to supplement existing data sources. Additional data will contribute to firmly establish the economic and social value of culture investment as well as to understand the dynamics of the creative economy.

An update on change drivers and economic and legal implications of transfers or players

An update on change drivers and economic and legal implications of transfers or players

For the European Commission (DG EAC)

The aim of this report is to analyse the developments of the transfer market since 2013 in terms of main economic trends and legal evolution. The study was commissioned in October 2017 by DG EAC and undertaken by KEA, supported by Ecorys. This research draws on and updates the findings of a previous study on the topic, published in 2013.
