CONTENT INNOVATION COUNCIL
The Content Innovation Council (CIC) has been designed
to actively support Europe’s cultural + creative sectors
as they respond to the challenges resulting from digital transformation.
The council’s creation took place at Frankfurter Buchmesse in October 2019
and is based on the European Manifesto on Supporting Innovation for Cultural and Creative Sectors,
which was developed in 2018 by 14 institutions from across Europe
to identify the main structural hurdles to innovation in the creative sectors.
The newly founded Content Innovation Council identified three focal topics
in the Manifesto to be addressed with cross-sectoral solutions:
lack of funding, insufficient integration of technical + entrepreneurial competences
as well as changing value chains and the need for new business models.
The council’s initial findings + suggested solutions were presented + further elaborated
at Avant Première 2020 in Berlin.
