MetadataShow full item record
Most of the creativity in the digital universe passes unnoticed by the industry practices and policies, and it isn't taken into account in the cultural and economic strategies of the creative industries. We should find ways to catalyze this creative production, showing how the user´s contribution may contribute to social learning, cultural and economic advancement. To that effect, we must know what is a open creative system and how it works.

What is at stake is a strategy of integrated development, as regards the upcoming innovation in its complex, productive and learning aspects.
