How does creative content affect cultural identity at both the national and local level?

Background

There is also a need to understand the level and type of innovation and R&D activity undertaken by creative businesses, and the impacts this has on growth, trade and societal benefits. We are also interested in how the creative industries are adapting business models and navigating new markets, as well as how these changes affect audiences. MCI wants to better understand the values and future values of the CIs including economic output but beyond this to consider societal delivery, soft power and net zero.
