Context explanation – conference topic selection:

Creative industries – characterized as those areas where product or service contains a substantial element of artistic or creative endeavour (Caves, 2000) – is a relatively new aggregate established by the Department of Culture, Media nad Sport (DCMS) in UK in 1998 (Blythe, 2001). They are defined as „Advertising, Architecture, Art and Antiques Market, Crafts, Design, Designer Fashion, Film, Interactive and leisure software, Music, Performing Arts, Publishing, Television and Radio“ (DCMS, 1998). In reality, they encompass diverse sectors, however, with a common feature – the concept of creativity. In Europe, the creative industries make a significant contribution to the economy, creating about 3% of European Union GDP – corresponding to an annual market value of €500 billion – and employing about 6 million people (CEMP, 2013). Globally, UNCTAD (2010) estimates the growth in creative services at 7.5%.

Creative sector has been recognized as a tool for economic growth. Within Europe EC former president Barroso (2010) recognised the necessity to ‘move towards an economy based on creativity, knowledge and innovation’ and that ‘boosting the creative industries in Europe’s cities’ is a ‘key element of the European 2020 strategy’. Current EC president Juncker (2014) in his opening statement in the European Parliament highlighted the importance of digital technologies for Europe and the necessity of building a connected digital market. In addition, one of the EU flagship initiatives proposed by the Commission within the EU 2020 strategy is ‘A Digital Agenda for Europe’ (CAE, 2014).
