Open Call: Study on the Economic Impact of the Craft Sector in Europe

Within the World Crafts Council Europe it has been noted through surveys carried out on all WCCE members that concrete and official statistics on crafts are not available in most countries, let alone at European level. This lack of data and information prevents the establishment of policies that favour the survival and competitiveness of the craft sector. The sector has great potential for economic growth and can contribute to job creation but suffers from a lack of representation and support. In order to promote it, it is first necessary to understand the current situation.

That is why, within the framework of the Crafting Europe project financed by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, a study on the Impact of the Crafts Sector in Europe will be carried out, in order to determine the extent of the contribution of crafts and skilled trades to the European economy.

Deadline: November 23
