In many localities creative industry has become the object or strategies and activities associated with economic policy. Various cities and regions in Europe have recognised the importance of this industrial sector for structural change, innovation and growth, especially in recent years. So the added value creative industry brings is on the one hand cultural, in that it contributes to the image of a locality as a centre of innovation, and at the same time economic, in being a branch of industry with value creation chains in its own right. With this first Creative Industry Report, Liechtenstein now also appears on the map for the consideration of academics and economists.


 


Creative industry in rural regions

Consisting of four persons from the University of Liechtenstein’s Institute of Architecture and Spatial Development, the PARK research team spent 14 months assembling and analysing information about the creative industry in the Principality. Their findings point to the fact that creative and cultural industry is not narrowly focused on an urban setting – on the contrary, important artistic and creative impulses can also be found in a rural context.

First ever Creative Industry Report for Liechtenstein

This first Creative Industry Report is an important step in the direction of bringing the present state of creative industry in the Principality to light, and documenting its development in future reports addressed to the general public. At the same time its results make a contribution to the progress of international research in the field of cultural and creative industry.
