Abstract:Creative industries tend to cluster in larger cities and are known as drivers of innovation. Their innovativeness is discussed in the context of an open and collaborative innovation process and it is argued that the close proximity of firms contributes to creative industries competitive advantage due to the easier knowledge and economic exchange with various partners. The external environment – including the diversity of people, the easier access of qualified labor as well as the activities of urban life – positively influences the innovation process of creative industries and the respective innovation output. Creative industries’ innovation output includes product and process innovation, but also innovative business models, market innovation and technological innovation. Linking the concepts of creative industries to the concept of clusters, innovation and networks this study argues that horizontal and vertical collaboration in the innovation process of creative industries has an influence on their innovation output. A quantitative analysis of Berlin’s creative industries provides empirical evidence.
