Creative Industries in Flanders Mapping and economic analysis
Alain Guiette Sofie Jacobs Annick Schramme Koen Vandenbempt
This study report is part of the mission of the Flanders DC - Antwerp Management School Centre of Expertise to make Creative Flanders more entrepreneurial. In this context, the value networks were initially mapped for each sector, as well as their economic impact.
Recently, there have been many efforts to map the Creative Industries, to quantify their net added value, and calculate their impact. Although each study emphasises the lack of effective comparable data and variables to quantify the sector, there are occasional attempts to present the sector in a creative manner. To date, the economic position of the Creative Industries in Flanders has only been presented in a highly aggregated manner. The aim of this study is therefore not to avoid the limitations concerning the data and to approach the Creative Industries in Flanders from different angles and create tools that realistically identify the wealth of the sectors.
