This conference will aim at presenting and diffusing the publications resulting from the project. They are based on two complementary volumes. The first, coordinated by the University of Valencia, proposes an economic analysis on questions of culture and innovation. The second volume, coordinated by the Relais Culture Europe, puts these questions into perspective with regards to the choices with which we are faced in terms of development, society and democracy.
