Felix Lossio (Newcastle); Richard Naylor (BOP Consulting); Cristina Rosemberg (Technopolis) - Coined in the United Kingdom in the early nineties, the creative economy refers to the services and products protected by intellectual property rights, in which the "creative content" plays an essential role. Sectors such as the visual and performing arts, the film industry, publishing, videogames, music or in some cases gastronomy and architecture; are included. As has been demonstrated during the last decade particularly for developed countries, the creative industries play a major role in national economies and international trading, having in some cases a larger impact both in the GDP and in the creation of employment than areas such as construction, mining or agriculture. More importantly, they are crucial in the promotion of citizenship and senses of belongings.
