The Networked Lives, Digital Cultures and the Future of Creative Production: Comparing EU-Australian Perspectives Conference explored the current state of play in cutting-edge research into the cultural and creative industries, as well as the key challenges and opportunities facing culture and creative production in both the EU and Australia. Using this important intersection to guide dialogue, conference participants discussed their own research perspective, methods and current/emerging projects. Connections between the Australian research context and international research opportunities were outlined, particularly with reference to funding opportunities provided by the European Union through the Jean Monnet Grants Program.
The event featured keynote addresses on current European thinking on the creative industries and economies by Dr Kylie Jarrett of Maynooth University, Ireland, and Associate Professor Ivana Pais of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, Italy.
