The European Commission has launched a call, as part of the Horizon 2020 programme, to investigate inclusive and sustainable growth in the cultural and creative industries.

Recognising the sectors’ contribution to employment and growth, even in times of economic crisis, the European Commission is looking to formulate a series of evidence-based  policy recommendations to help mobilise and connect the sectors as well as increase awareness of the economic and societal issues at stake.

Many political and sector representatives from the UK and other European countries are calling for UK participation in Creative Europe to continue.
