Cultural & Creative Industries (CCI) in Germany
The lastest monitoring report “Selected Economic Key Data on the Culture and Creative Industries” demonstrates the immense economic significance of the CCI for the German economy. The number of companies has been growing continually since 2009. More than 250.000 business work in the CCI providing jobs to more than 1,6 million entrepreneurs and employees.
The monitoring is published on a regular basis by the Cultural and Creative Industries Initiative of the German Government. Each monitoring has a special focus, lately for example on internationalization in the CCI or cross innovation. Recently, special reports about digitization and innovation in the CCI as well as the economic significance of the German film industry have been published.
In Germany, the ministers of economy from the 16 German states have agreed on a common definition of cultural and creative industries. They “comprise all culture and creative enterprises that are mainly market-oriented and deal with the creation, production and/or dissemination through the media of cultural/creative goods and services.”
