During the summer of 2016 three CREATe events took place in which economists working in the areas of culture, media and industrial organization were invited to exchange views on the transformative impact of digitization and the internet on the creative economy and to reflect on the implications of emerging trends for the future of the creative economy and for copyright. One of these events was jointly sponsored by the Association for Cultural Economics International (ACEI) at their conference at the University of Valladolid, Spain and a second was jointly sponsored with the Society for Economic Research on Copyright Issues (SERCI) at their conference at Loyola University Chicago School of Law, Chicago, USA in July. The third event was part of the CREATe Festival held in London at the Royal Society of Arts in June.
