Cultural and creative industries as an accelerator of development

 

The aim of the domain of specialisation Cultural and creative industries as an accelerator of development is to involve creativity, culture and art in traditional and new fields of human activity and to move the economy towards the creation of products and services with high added value.

 

The domain is included in the thematic area Cultural and creative industries.

Why are cultural and creative industries included among the RIS3 priorities?

  • The Czech Republic has resourceful people with creative abilities
  • We have capable engineers who can use new technologies
  • Our entrepreneurs know how to seize new opportunities and build a business on them
  • We have quality research facilities for the application of design, architecture and the arts
  • We have a rich tradition in traditional industries (glassmaking, textiles, architecture, etc.)
  • We have succeeded in the strong competition in new creative industries (audio-visual, film, gaming, etc.)

Application sectors under the domain

The cultural and creative sectors include several areas of human activity that have a large overlap with all other human activities. The dividing line between the traditional sectors (industrial applications of design in engineering, architecture, technologies, the manufacture of glass, textiles, furniture, arts and crafts, etc.) and new sectors (audio-visual applications, digital creation, game design, smart textiles, etc.) is also gradually disappearing.

Strategic themes for research and innovation in application sectors

Progressive product design

Design is a key comparative advantage in many sectors and helps to create user-oriented solutions. Advanced technologies are involved in the design process, production and after-sales services. Product design is closely linked to material research, video game design to digital technologies, architecture to construction. The strategic theme is strongly interdisciplinary and requires the collaboration among many professions.

Innovative service and process modelling

The design thinking method allows us to understand user needs and behaviour and to link design thinking to business strategy. The customer becomes a partner and his/her reaction contributes to the rapid creation of functional prototypes and their effective testing. The method disrupts established stereotypes and introduces new operating procedures, unconventional use of technology and innovative business models.

Key enabling technologies in the domain Cultural and creatuve industries as an accelerator of development

Applied research and experimental development in the cultural and creative industries can focus on all key enabling technologies. Each of them can be used to innovate in all application sectors belonging to this domain, but also in other areas. New and unconventional uses of R&D results bring innovation not only to the production of new products and services, but also to fields such as education, health and social care.

The specific research and innovation themes for key enabling technologies in this domain can be found in Annex 1 to the National RIS3.

More detailed general information on key enabling technologies can be found here.

Themes concerning social sciences, humanities and arts in the domain Cultural and creative industries as an accelerator of development

Cultural and creative industries (CCC) are directly related to people, their lifestyle, quality of life and culture. People themselves with their creative abilities are the main driving force in this domain.

Research in social sciences, humanities and arts (SSHA) will focus on the following SSHA groups:

Specific research topics in the social sciences, humanities and arts in this domain can be found in Annex 1 to the National RIS3.
