Cultural and creative industries (CCIs) play a key role in reindustrialising Europe, are a driver for growth and are in a strategic position to trigger innovative spill-overs in other industrial sectors.
Furthermore CCIs are a driving force for innovation and development of ICT in Europe. Cultural and creative industries in Europe provide more than 12 million full-time jobs, which amounts to 7,5 % of the Union’s work force, creating approximately EUR 509 billion in value added to GDP (5,3 % of the EU’s total GVA). The protection of copyright and related rights are at the core of the CCI’s revenue.
