    • 1.
    • Recent policy initiatives for creative industries focus on the starting small companies on the one hand, and on the multinational ‘star companies’ on the other. Most companies, however, are neither of both. We should develop a life cycle approach, catering for the needs of creative companies in all stages of their development within the city-region.
    • 2.
    • European cities should not try to compete with the global cities, but try to develop their own innovative niche.
    • 3.
    • Creative and knowledge-intensive industries will return to their growth path once the ‘credit crunch’ and the worldwide recession are behind us. They are still Europe’s best bet for economic growth and competitiveness.
    • (Are the creative industries the way out of recession, or were they part of the bubble?)
    • 4.
    • Most creative knowledge workers are not ‘hyper-mobile’ and not rich. Therefore, while creating short-stay facilities is important, it is much more important to make the city-regional housing market more accessible for those not born in the city-region, and to keep it (or make it) affordable.
