The Knowledge Foundation

Economic estimates and policy framework


Volante Research have been tasked by the Knowledge Foundation for several projects concerning the cultural and creative sector. Among them the first Swedish mapping of the experience industry (now called the cultural and creative sector) in 2003.

The ERIBA model is a policy framework for the creative industries and a book by Tobias Nielsén published in 2008 (the Swedish original in 2006; in collaboration with Putte Svensson et al).

The book was launched at the World Cultural Economic Forum in New Orleans, USA, in 2008.

It consists of two parts. The first part describes the cultural and creative industries and the second part explains the model and how growth can be supported and stimulated.
