The conference brought together innovation experts, economists, urbanists, social innovators, cultural entrepreneurs, policy makers and politicians. During the conference, they charted the state of the innovation debate and re-drew the public agenda for a creative public domain that supports a strong knowledge economy.
Culture and creativity are the latest “buzzwords” in the debate on innovation strategies for the knowledge economy. But what is the cultural dimension of the knowledge economy? And what does this imply for the public domain? These were the central questions of the Amsterdam Creative Capital conference on March 17 and 18 2005 in Amsterdam.
