    MESOC adapts and further develops a method for “transition based” impact assessment derived from a previous Unesco Chair publication, building a structural model of the Societal Dimension of Culture, as defined by one of the strategic objectives of the European Agenda. The model will be used in the project: - To define the perimeter of investigation of the societal value and impacts of cultural policies and practices, thus framing and guiding the collection of academic and institutional literature and the definition of a set of case studies relevant to the three crossover themes of a) Health and Wellbeing, 2) Urban and Territorial Renovation and 3) People’s Engagement and Participation; - As a theoretical lens to propose and validate, using the Delphi method, in collaboration with a large representation of key institutional, academic and professional actors, a long list of impact transmission variables and indicators reflecting the underlying approach (“theory of change”) of the surveyed case studies; - As an evaluative tool to assess the societal value and impacts of cultural policies and practices related to the three crossover themes, both diachronically and synchronically, within 10 European City pilots; - To propose a (tentative) set of statistical data sources (possibly including new ones that are practically and economically feasible) which could complement existing measures of the societal value and impacts of culture by adding its effects on personal well-being and health, citizens involvement and participation, urban identity and social cohesion. The ultimate, expected output of the project is a Free and Open Access, online service (named the MESOC Toolkit) that could be used by both researchers and practitioners (the latter including both policy makers and cultural operators from all over the EU) to measure the societal value and impacts of cultural policies and practices.

    The goal of inDICEs is to empower policy-makers and decision-makers in the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) to fully understand the social and economic impact of digitisation in their sectors and address the need for innovative (re)use of cultural assets. To this end, inDICEs will (i) Develop a comprehensive methodology to measure and assess the economic and social impact of digitisation of cultural heritage on the access to European cultural goods and services and their modes of production; (ii) Produce in-depth comparative analyses of the impact of digitisation and IPR regulations on the access to European culture and on creative cultural production; (iii) Formulate policy recommendations and develop novel solutions and business models to overcome bottlenecks in the creative (re)use and consumption of cultural assets; (iv) Establish an open observatory to track policies and trends over the long-term; (v) Empower Cultural Heritage Institutions (CHIs) to make strategic self-assessment about their readiness for the Digital Single Market and adaptation to the current legal frameworks in order to foster their digital transformation. As a result, policy-makers will have a solid framework to assess the impact of cultural heritage and a dashboard to keep track of the advancement of the impact of cultural heritage in Europe. For their own part, CHIs will be able to make strategic decisions that will enable them to increase their positive contributions to the Cultural and Creative Industries and society and advance in the Digital Single Market. inDICEs brings together internationally renowned research groups in the domains of Cultural Economics, IP Law and Digital Humanities, representatives from the CCI with deep insights in the sector, Non-governmental organisations with substantial outreach capacity, social innovators and platform developers.
