We conduct studies and surveys on the status of the cultural and creative sector and on the impact of culture in society.

For establishing a statistical cultural observatory in Cluj-Napoca, we make an updated diagnosis of the cultural sector and develop a methodology and a series of researches on cultural participation.

In order to develop actions and to propose mechanisms and policies, we also carry out research on different themes covered by the Centre’s projects (well-being, urban mobility, social participation, urban development, etc.).
