Competence model and roadmap

Creative and media industry survey

Creative and media industries are very diverse, in size, type of activity, necessary skills but, also, in the relevance each one has in different geographical ecosystems.

One of the first decisions of the consortium members was to focus the activity of the working groups on a limited number of specific areas of these industries. To identify and select those areas of most interest, it was decided to carry out a survey in which researchers from each of the organisations participated, as well as professionals and managers of companies in the sector close to the entities involved in the consortium.

The survey was carried out between the months of June and September 2022 with a total of 67 responses representing the interests of all the ecosystems that will participate in the development of the work. In order to facilitate the answers, it was decided to split the survey between creative and media industries.

Competence framework survey

In order to create a proposal for a competency framework, two frameworks related to entrepreneurship and digitalisation were selected, Entrecomp and Digicomp. Based on them, a questionnaire was developed so that the members of the consortium and professionals from the creative industry and media sector could assess the competences of these frameworks in two dimensions: relevance and level so that the most relevant competences for the managerial and entrepreneurial profile of the creative industries could be selected.

The creative economy has no single definition. It is an evolving concept which builds on the interplay between human creativity and ideas and intellectual property, knowledge and technology. Essentially it is the knowledge-based economic activities upon which the ‘creative industries’ are based. The creative industries – which include advertising, architecture, arts and crafts, design, fashion, film, video, photography, music, performing arts, publishing, research & development, software, computer games, electronic publishing, and TV/radio – are the lifeblood of the creative economy. They are also considered an important source of commercial and cultural value.

The creative economy is the sum of all the parts of the creative industries, including trade, labour and production. Today, the creative industries are among the most dynamic sectors in the world economy providing new opportunities for developing countries to leapfrog into emerging high-growth areas of the world economy.
