JRC speaks to Europe’s culture vultures

The Joint Research Centre, the in-house science service of the European Commission, has launched a tool for comparing how cities make use of culture and creativity.

The Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor, which was launched yesterday, measures how cities’ cultural and creative industries contribute to their economic and social development. It is intended to help policymakers and people in relevant industries identify local strengths and areas for improvement.

The tool provides data across nine dimensions, including human capital and education, cultural venues and facilities, intellectual property and innovation, and creative and knowledge-based jobs. So far it has included data on 168 cities in 30 European countries.
