The goal of the Center is to harness the power of theorists and practitioners specializing in arts and culture and the creative economy, to enable implementation of research initiatives and applied projects.

Research Goals

We are developing a strong platform, which fosters understanding and cooperation, and supports the development of the Polish creative economy and its position in the country and around the world.

What is Creative Economy?

In 2001, John Howkins published “The Creative Economy. How People make Money from Ideas”. In the book he showed, in an innovative way, how the economy, culture, technology (especially the new technologies), and human creativity are connected and intertwined.

A few years later, in 2008, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) issued a “Creative Economy Report 2008: The Challenge of Assessing the Creative Economy: Toward Informed Policy-making”, which ushered the term “creative economy” into the international scientific discourse.e of Assesing the Creative Economy: Toward Informed Policy – making”.

The term combines the following ideas:

  • creative class
  • creative cities
  • culture industries
  • creative sector
  • and various types of creativity.

The significance of the creative economy has been steadily growing. It has been also emphasized that apart from being conducive to social inclusiveness, cultural diversity, and human development, the creative economy carries a huge potential for economic growth.

According to one of the latest reports published by the European Commission, creative sectors constitute 11.2% of all private enterprises that employ 7.5% of all working people, and contribute 5.3% of the added value in the EU.

We want to bring together
all creative theoreticians and practitioners

The notion of creative economy and creative sectors is relatively new in scientific literature, so is the recognition of this sector of the economy as a separate and distinct sphere. Research, especially in Poland, is still scarce in this area. The research projects that have been conducted so far, definitely require further studies in relation to many aspects of the sector in question.

Therefore, the goal of the Creative Economy Research Center is to be a leader in the field of the creative economy research and become an important partner for research in this field, in Poland and abroad.

However, our goal is to go beyond the theoretical approach. We not only wish to focus on analyzing the creative economy in Poland and Europe, but we also want to contribute to its development. Creativity means an ongoing dialog ‒ we are here to ensure its effectiveness. We want to bring together all creative people and, by harnessing the synergy, develop positive solutions. To this end, the Center collaborates with individuals as well as public, private, commercial and non-profit institutions.

If you work in the creative economy sector and you have an idea for an innovative research or applied project, but you don’t know where to start, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help you.
