Hearing your voice

Capturing the profile and evolution of creative hubs throughout Europe
Thank you for joining us on the pilot of the Yearly Creative Hubs Barometer, which will establish a baseline to compare and understand hubs in Europe over the next few years.  

Your self-assessment feedback will be important for creative hub managers to know more about trends in their sector, to better advocate for it and to better understand where their hub fits in the creative economy.

  All individual data retrieved will be treated confidentially. Only aggregated data will be made public. Please provide the most accurate data possible.  

Please provide all input as measured on 31st December 2016. 

Questions on the Creative Hubs Barometer can be addressed to the British Council (Roxana Apostol ) and to ECBN (Rui Monteiro,
This survey consists of four sections:
Section 1 is about your basic profile;
Section 2 is about your present activities;
Section 3 is about your impact; and
Section 4 is about your future.
