The increased use of available margins in the budget nevertheless decreases the contribution of Horizon 2020 from 2.7 billion Euros to 2.2 billion Euros. More...

Panorama des industries créatives et culturelles en Guadeloupe

cariforefCette publication a été réalisée avec le concours financier de la DAC et de la DIECCTE. Les Industries Culturelles et Créatives (ICC) ont vu leur importance s’accroître ces dernières décennies. Elles sont « plus prometteuses en termes de croissance et de création d’emplois que les autres secteurs », selon l’Unesco. L’une des raisons principales est qu’elles ont grandement bénéficié de l’avènement des outils numériques, des Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication (TIC), qui ont augmenté leurs capacités de création et d’innovation, de production, de promotion, de diffusion et de commercialisation des biens et des services.
