Response to EU Green Paper

On April 27 2010, the EU Commission launched a Green Paper on how to unlock the potential in the cultural and creative industries. The twenty pages long paper build on former studies of the economic importance as well as job creating within these industries, and suggests approaches, incentives, and pose retoric questions as of how to unlock the potential that they found.

The European network Encatc has, together with Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths University of London and Nätverkstan in Göteborg, prepared a response. Download it here:encatc-response-to-eu-green-paper .

Read this former post from the European Forum of Cultural Industries in Barcelona on March 29-30 2010.

  1. I read your answer and one thing that strikes me is the strong emphasis on research to find new business models. I ask my self if that works as a model (well it works in creation of academic jobs)? My limited experience is that the researchers look at some practice (successful start-up) and from this show what new business model was used. This makes me believe more in Gartners pragmatic hypothesis of ”Strategy as a pattern of decisions” thus I would like to see some brave suggestions of creative destruction instead of a criticism of the green paper it self.

    What makes me happy is your highlight on business models from (i guess for example India) as being the new shit. When HBR had a special on that topic last Dec my jaw dropped. When the IP briers on the internal market drops we might have the same potentiality here. If you arrange a conference with Indian researchers on business modeling I will be the first to sign up.

  2. Interesting you find an emphasis on research in the reply. It was not intended to be more emphasis on this than on other things. The reply is written in direct answer and comment to the EU Green Paper, which might also be its limitation.

    As for research, I do find it important to conduct research on new areas such as cultural industries. But it’s definitely not the main issue to put focus on within the EU. It’s rather to understand that these cultural businesses are run in different manner than traditional industries, something that has to be taken into account when looking for how to catalyze their potential. Maybe we need more cafés where informal meetings take place and new ideas flourish?

    And yes, you are invited to such a conference if we conduct one. The idea has been up already. :-)
