BerlinCCI – Culture and Creative Industries, Research Symposia and Workshops
Creative Work: Is its economic impact a measurable economic factor for innovation policy?
Workshop on Creative Work as an Innovation Factor
Regular meeting of the Working Group on Cultural and Creative Industries of the Conference of Ministers for Economic Affairs
7 October 2015 Berlin
Landesvertretung des Saarlandes, Berlin
Organiser Michael Soendermann/Office for Culture Industries Research, Cologne, in cooperation with the Federal Government’s Centre of Excellence for the Cultural and Creative Industries/u-institut.
The question whether products and services of the culture and creative industries are innovation factors remains unsolved. Economic branches outside the creative sector as such regard creative inputs as a kind of annex, mainly taking the form of design services. The general understanding of the innovative value of a car is still mainly based on its technological components. Innovations are usually measured in terms of R&D costs, the number of patent registrations and highly qualified staff. Machine and vehicle manufacturing, electrical engineering and pharmaceutical manufacturing are usually counted among the industrial sectors with the highest share of research and therefore considered to be the classic drivers of innovation in the German economy. Nevertheless, there has been growing appreciation of the possible innovative potential of creative work and services provided by the culture and creative industries.
However, there is still a lot of doubt whether this creative work can be adequately described and defined in economic terms. Furthermore, the question remains whether the features thus defined can be captured using empirically measurable terms. These are exactly the two questions that the European Commission has tackled in cooperation with design agencies from across Europe. As the result of a three-year research project, it has presented findings on the empirical basis of creative work. According to the opinion of the experts, these research findings might be included in the upcoming new editions of the Oslo and Frascati Manuals.
If there should be new editions of the two manuals, this would be an opportunity for the Conference of Ministers of Economic Affairs in Germany to look more closely into the matter. This workshop therefore addresses German economic policy makers and presents the preparatory works and plans of the EU Commission.

“I think the idea of having a brainstorming symposium on some of the issues related to the cultural and creative industries sector is super pertinent. I have attended many attempts for such a comprehensive debate, but there are always very important elements and people missing. It looks like you are trying to collect the most important institutional players and I fully welcome this idea. The more open the debate the better. So, I am very interested to participate and honoured by your invitation.” (Dimiter Gantchev, WIPO)

“Culture is at the origin of direct and indirect job creation, since creativity is the raw material of many activities. Nevertheless, the number of jobs concerned is discussed. Moreover, a virtuous relationship between creativity and employment requires more general favourable conditions (an ecosystem). The case of France will be especially presented: in spite of a strong commitment of the State and local authorities in culture, the crisis imposes a decline in subsidies; the argument traditionally put forward by people involved in culture consists in the spillover effects of culture. We will discuss its legitimacy and limits.”
Deputy Director, Culture and Creative Sectors, WIPO, Geneva, CH
Mr. Gantchev is Deputy Director in the Culture and Creative Industries Sector of the World Intellectual Property Organization and Head of the Creative Industries Section.

Mr. Gantchev has numerous publications on creative industries, intellectual property and foreign policy issues. He speaks English, French, Russian, Swedish and Bulgarian.
“The debate on the potential of creative industries for supporting economic growth and sustainable development occasionally tends to overlook the importance of the enabling infrastructure, among which copyright plays a significant role. The elements forming this infrastructure need to be further clarified and to be linked to the successful implementation of the concept. Research on causalities and broader socio-economic impacts needs to provide more evidence and substantiate the future of creative industries as a winning strategy in the knowledge economy.”

Creativity has been absent from the sustainable development agenda despite its importance in fostering entrepreneurship and resilience, building capabilities and improving well-being, developing the freedom of expression and dialogue, and providing substantial economic growth and jobs The international community is standing before an historic opportunity in the global movement to recognise culture as a key resource, as a driver and enabler for sustainable development. This historic opportunity is the final negotiations taking place over the next eight months to establish the post 2015 UN sustainable development agenda, its goals and targets. This agenda needs to adopt a vision that corresponds to people’s needs, and to recognise the economic and non-monetary benefits that culture and creative economy generate to achieve people-centered, inclusive and sustainable development.

“It is generally recognized that the economic contribution of cultural industries to a national economy can be significant. Many countries have identified the need to invest in cultural industries and are formulating appropriate policies. However, the accurate measurement of the value of cultural industries is hindered in many countries due to a lack of a proper definition, the unavailability of detailed data which do not allow for the proper application of appropriate methodologies. At the global level, UNESCO has worked towards advancing cultural statistics and the measurement of cultural industries through i) the development of a model statistical framework (2009 UNESCO FCS) for defining the culture sector; ii) advancing the understanding and application of economic methodologies that measure the economic contribution of cultural industries (FCS Handbook No. 1) and iii) support countries in improving the availability and quality of cultural data.”

There are four export models of Asian performing arts: 1, action and skills; 2, themes shared; 3, expression pathways shared; 4, wonders.

“How to be a Genius. A ‘genius’ – defined by Professor Howard Gardner of Harvard Graduate School of Education as an Exemplary Creator – is made not born. Certain factors contribute to their success, from their home life, to seeking out their peers, mastering their discipline and challenging accepted norms. Once they have made a breakthrough they tend to make others, every 10 years or so, defining new ground for themselves and their area of expertise. What lessons can be learned from history to identify and encourage a new generation of geniuses in the Cultural and Creative Industries?”
