Global Creative Industries Economy in the last ten years made a huge breakthrough and now creative services and production value raised up enormously and reached 624 billion US dollars. In the last decade Creative Industries are considered as not only a remarkable employer, but also it works as an innovation generator that helps to develop also other economic spectrums.
Heavy shock was brought by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The unstoppable disease affected everything including entrepreneurship and especially Creative Industries as cultural and creative industries have been among the first sectors to shut their doors and they will be among the last to reopen.
The COVID-19 crisis revealed that the cultural and creative industries are more economically important than ever as more than 50 million people across the globe are self-registered as working in the creative industries.
Due to the facts mentioned above this is a crucial time for Creative Industries and this is why RTU International Cooperation and Foreign Students Department (ICFSD) is organizing the summer school to develop directions that might help to foster new opportunities in the industry.
