New research library added!
We've added a new
to the site, as a collecting point for any interesting research, articles, blogs, books, or resources that feed into or engage with the spillovers debate. Feel free to take a look and please send us any interesting things you're aware of so that we can add them in. We'll be updating the library every couple of months so let us know what you think.
Researching Spillover in the creative and cultural industries
by Dr Jonathan Vickery
We're delighted to share a
from one of our research partners - Dr Jonathan Vickery of the Centre for Cultural Policy Studies at the University of Warwick. Dr Vickery's paper is a comment on methodology in response to requests for clarity on what is meant by method - specifically, how we understand our research on ‘spillover’ to be categorically different from past attempts to define and investigate the social or economic roles of the arts, culture or creative industries.
We're very happy to share our
, outlining the work we've done so far, our definition of cultural and creative spillovers, and details of our four ongoing research projects. We distributed the flyers to interested delegates at the Forum D'Avignon Ruhr 2016 to spread the word about the work we're doing. If you want to hand out flyers yourself, or know if any good opportunities to disseminate our work further, please
get in touch
The flyer is also the first showcase of our new logo (visible above), selected by our partners.
Research workshop at the Forum d'Avignon Ruhr 2016 - Thank you!
Thank you all for joining our research workshop on 25th August in Essen - it was a very fruitful and inspiring and we are already looking forward the next time!In the upcoming weeks, we will upload the workshop report so you can read more about the workshop, its participants, presentations and discussions.
Meanwhile, please visit the

In 2016, the research follows the commissioning and publication of the
'Cultural and creative spillovers in Europe’, authored by Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy (UK). The project will focus on testing evaluation methods of cultural and creative
in the arts, culture and the creative industries in Europe. In spring 2016, we were soliciting individual or a consortium bid(s) from parties interested in completing case studies in different nations in the EU28, EU candidate countries and Eastern Partnership countries.
We have commissioned four research teams from Finland, Italy, Poland and the Netherlands
– for more information please visit the
case studies 0216
The case studies will document, evaluate and make recommendations based on arts, cultural and creative activity/projects/developments where cultural and creative spillover effects have been evaluated or might be evaluated using and testing innovative methods. The output will be a report commenting on and delivering recommendations on the efficacy of methodological approaches used in different settings to measure spillover effects and on future methodological approaches to investigating spillover effects.
In January 2015, an EU-wide research project
"Preliminary Evidence of Spillover Effects in Europe"
was launched with the aim of better understanding the methodologies that could be used to better measure spillover effects of public investment (public money awarded directly or indirectly by government funded industry bodies) in the arts, culture and the creative industries. A research alliance across Europe have contributed research to form an
international evidence library
. Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy was commissioned to analyse the evidence library - approximately 100 case studies (projects and activities) - and their spillover effects (download the report
for a hard copy).
This research platform has been initiated by the Arts Council England (ACE) and the european centre for creative economy (ecce). It is funded by ecce, ACE, Arts Council of Ireland, Creative England and the European Cultural Foundation. The European Creative Business Network (ECBN) is managing the financial administration of the project and will be responsible for contractual processes and all payments. Find out more about the
We will use this preliminary research as a base to better understand and identify optimal conditions to enable spillover effects and to list indicators to measure these effects. To date this research:
is the most comprehensive database on projects with spillover effects in Europe.
is the first project attempting to analyse the causality of spillover effects and their contribution to the EU Agenda 2020.
will be the first open-access digital research platform for spillover effects.
Please note that this platform will be continuously developed to reflect our ongoing research strategy and the suggestions of our community of debate around spillovers.
Join the debate!
We have developed this simple platform with the following aims:
Share learning and encourage debate
Grow the currency and understanding of the term cultural and creative spillovers
Collect more evidence
Challenge, test, and peer review our findings
Dissemination of the research projects and its results
Maintain and grow our European network
