«Creative industries and the creative economy as a space for research and practice»

An edited volume

This is a collection of articles prepared by the fellows of the Oxford Russia Fund and experts - the participants of the Summer School 2011 «Creative industries and creative economy: developing applied research and projects». An international conference at the Skolkovo School of Management in February 2012 concluded the project of Summer School, at which project authors were given the chance to present their works.

It is no coincidence that this collection contains both project descriptions by young Russians and articles by recognised foreign specialists - Lluis Bonet, Marjo Maenpaa, Giulio Stumpo and Chris Helmbrecht. We believe that the texts gathered together here will be of interest and useful to anyone who would like to become further acquainted with the theories and practices of creative industries and the creative economy, and will help paint a clearer picture of what is happening both within Russia and abroad.
