Creative Industries in India – Mapping Study
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) India commissioned and co-funded the “Indian Creative Industries Report” which maps the creative industries in India. Loughborough University leads the project in partnership with Glasgow and Jindal Universities. The report also includes in-depth analyses of Creative Technologies and Circular Fashion and Design. It aims to generate a “heat map” of the creative industries and investigate “key opportunity sub-sectors” to locate areas of “the greatest potential” and “development of India-UK research and innovation collaboration.”
The Indian Creative Industries Report launch was launched on 22 Feb 2023 at the Shangri-La Hotel in New Delhi, hosted by UKRI India, in the presence of First Secretary of the Ministry of Culture, Mugdha Sinha.
