The Topic of ECIS 2016:
Structural Policies for the Industrial Future of the Creative Industries
The ECIS wants to initiate and facilitate a collaboration of the leading drivers for industrial
strategies within creative industries on European, national and regional levels. For the first
time these leading, yet diverse drivers are invited to exchange know-how and coordinate
their policy strategies, which could lead to a major leap in the industrial capacities: Already
an European coordination of national funding policies, f.e. for design or games, could open
markets transnationally, extend value chains and increase income for the given sectors –
without any additional funding. Thus in times of increasing global challenges the ECIS is
focusing on the industrial and global dimension, the scaling skill within the cultural and
creative industries.
