Project description

Nuremberg, as one of the rising share of creative industries in Germany, put considerable emphasis on fostering creative businesses development and growth. The city possesses a wide array of programs designed to assist artists, young start-ups and creative entrepreneurs, thereby supporting the development of CIs. The Economy and Infrastructure Forum of the European Metropolitan Region Nuremberg (EMN) helps to make the cultural and creative industries in the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region visible. In 2010 the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region was the first in Germany to publish a report on the culture and creative industries (KuK). The 2nd published report describes the changes that have taken place since then. In addition, it sketches a picture of the structural change within the KuK, illuminates the developments in the eleven sub-markets. The cultural and creative industries include a total of eleven very heterogeneous sub-markets.

Creativity has a decisive influence on a business location's ability to innovate, and so the industry is an important economic factor for Nuremberg as a contemporary high-tech, industrial and service location. In this regard, this research project aims to determine the most appropriate location for art and design offices that responds to the spatial and social needs of the creative class and can contribute to the creative identity of the city based on location choice analysis from an economic, institutional, and creative perspective.
