His new structure is managed and facilitated by Luxinnovation.

Luxembourg has almost 2,200 companies active in the creative industries, employing more than 6,300 people. In addition to the direct economic value they produce, creative industries play an important role in the development of innovation. At a press conference, Francine Closener said: “We know the social and cultural impact of the creative industry, but we often neglect its economic importance. By bringing together and interconnecting actors, we reinforce both the visibility and innovation potential of this sector, which is undergoing many technological changes and must adapt constantly.”
