Key objectives of the measure:

Research in culture has favored the public management of the country also in other areas.

  • The study "Mapping of the creative industries in Chile”(2014), has delivered useful information in diagnosing different realities of the cultural area. The study notes that education in the cultural and creative areas points to a generalist dimension of the discipline, without enabling the specialized training at least at the undergraduate level. In this context, the CNCA has mobilized funds to scholarships and internships to promote specialization and analytical production of the cultural field. Specifically, in the areas of performing arts and design, it has been promoted since 2011 the exchange of knowledge among designers, academics, businessmen and professionals related to discipline, to address topics such as new technologies, traditional trades or market strategies, with the objective of increasing of  the level of cultural capital in the sector.
  • Regarding the cultural value chain in the "Research Phase", the CNCA has made the following studies for the knowledge and appraisal of the creative industries: “Culture. Development Opportunity” (2011);
  • “Culture and Economics I and II” (2012 and 2013);
  • “Corporate Social Responsibility and its contribution to culture” (2013), and “Mapping of the creative industries in Chile”.
