Online resources: Summary: In 2009, creative and cultural industries firms employed a total of 6.4 million persons in 30 European countries. Regions with high concentrations of creative and cultural industries have Europe’s highest prosperity levels. Large urban areas and capital city regions dominate the creative and cultural industries, but some city regions do better than others. The super clusters London and Paris stand out, followed by Milan, Madrid, Barcelona and Rome. The creative and cultural industries are signifi cant generators of intellectual property, in particular copyrights. Regions strong in these industries also tend to have higher levels of patenting. Among the regions of Europe which rank among the top 25 either by population or CCI employment the following cities host an over-representation of the creative and cultural sector: Amsterdam (Noord-Holland), Berlin, Frankfurt (Darmstadt), Brighton (Surrey, E and W Sussex), Budapest (Kozep-Magyarorszag), The Hague (Zuid-Holland), Lisbon, Inner London, Oxford (Berks, Bucks and Oxon), and Stockholm. As a share of the regional labour market, creative and cultural industries account for the largest shares in Stockholm, Prague, London and Rome. Most of the regions in the top 25 highest cultural and creative growth regions are small and medium sized regions. The highest annual employment growth rates in the period 2003/4-2008/9 are found in Cyprus 25.79%, Slovakia 25.60%, Estonia 11.48%, Latvia 9.78%. Creative and cultural industries manufacturing and production activities are the most regionally concentrated, and consumer oriented activities such as retail the least regionally concentrated. Further statistical work is needed to measure the true size of the creative and cultural industries. The data used in this report covers employees but not sole traders (i.e. firms with no employees but one active owner) or freelancers. (Font: Autor)
