The Centre for Strategy & Evaluation Services (CSES), in collaboration with the ERICarts Institute , has carried out a study to reveal the contribution of culture to economic and social development, particularly at the local and regional level. In an effort to share practical experience, over 80 case studies were collected, illustrating the various effects of culture-based development. The report provides detailed accounts of the effects of these projects supported by the European Union Structural Funds.
The final report, entitled Study on the Contribution of Culture to Local and Regional Development – Evidence from the Structural Funds is available in English. It can be downloaded on the website of the European Commission-Culture DG.
