Annotation:

The scientific problem of this dissertation is how to measure the impact of creative industries (CI) on national economy and compare countries by the significance of CI impact on their economies. Relevance of the scientific problem is caused by the current situation where impact of CI on national economy is analysed fairly widely but rather superficially and a uniform methodology is necessary in order to evaluate the impact of CI on national economy and compare countries internationally.

The first part of this dissertation provides an analysis of the CI concept, discusses the relationship between the creative and cultural industries, as well as the CI in the context of creative economy and the assumptions for the emergence of CI. The second part overviews the peculiarities of CI, their impact on national economy areas and directions that constitute those areas; development of the model for the impact of CI on national economy and defines the constituents of the model, which are the basis for developing a conceptual research model. The third part desribes the research methodology and contains the research and results of measuring the CI impact on national economies within the EU in 2008–2014, allowing to compare the aforementioned impact with regards to other studied countries. Based on the results of this study, conclusions and recommendations for further research are proposed.
