The mini-study focuses mainly on the “spatial” and “organisational” dimensions of culture, as related to innovation. The “spatial” dimension concerns culture as it pertains to nations, regions and city-regions (including the “clusters” that may exist within these areas). Topics discussed include, for instance, the attractiveness of specific locations to the “creative class” (cultural facilities may well be an attractor); the readiness of markets to adopt innovations; and assessing the amount of creativity and innovative activity underway in a given area. The “organisational” dimension is taken up, in respect of economic organisations, with questions addressed as to how corporate, small business, and/or public sector cultures facilitate, inhibit, or otherwise shape innovation. Among the topics reviewed are consumer values and entrepreneurship: how and why these vary across different societies, and what the implications are for innovation.
