CREATe Symposium

CREATe, the UK Copyright and Creative Economy Centre based at the University of Glasgow, recently started work on a number of ambitious projects for the next five years. While they conceived this 2019 Symposium as work-in-progress, they are committed to an interdisciplinary and long-term perspective. In these uncertain times, we need to look both backward (where do we come from?) and forward (where might we go?).
