The research conducted by our teams at ICCA is dedicated to the cultural industries in the digital age. As such, it combines prospective studies with an analysis of the changes induced by digital technology in these fields, actor strategies, economic models, creators, uses… Our teams also investigate issues of content convergence (analyzing multimedia practices and the evolution of content design) as well as the emergence of new forms of online production and circulation of content and the regulation of the creative industries and the Internet (analysis of regulatory mechanisms and needs; legal and economic aspects; assessment).
These concerns make up the core of ICCA’s work, in connection with traditional cultural industries (publishing, music, film, audiovisual production), as well as with video games and educational industries (analyzing interactions between the video game industry and the educational field; serious games, e-learning).
