Abstract: The positive effects of the cultural and creative industries (CCI) on development worldwide, including in the European Union, are broadly acknowledged. Cultural Times - The First Global Map of Cultural and Creative Industries (CISAC & UNESCO, 2015) nominates Europe as the second largest CCI market (accounting to around 32% of the global total), while the sector’s contribution to the European GDP is approximately 4.4% (TERA, 2014) and it employs 7.5% of the European workforce (Austrian Institute for SME Research & VVA Europe, 2016). Despite CCI’s economic importance, there is a lack of studies in the scientific literature that analyse the particularities of creative workers, which is much needed in order to develop adequate policies for sustaining and promoting these industries.
