Sanda Martinčić-Ipšić gave the talk at MESOC Final Conference: Exploring and assessing the societal impacts of culture on MESOC Toolkit and Document Repository. MESOC's research has sought to develop innovative methodologies to capture and measure the wider societal value of culture that includes, but is not limited to its economic impact. It also encompasses personal health and well-being, urban renovation and regeneration and people's engagement and participation. MESOC provides improved cultural value measurements, including by the use of AI, and case studies in support of effective and inclusive policies and institutional frameworks which offer a convincing vision for citizens to face current cultural and societal transformations. Furthermore, the project uses hundreds of academic and grey literature documents, delved into dozens of city case studies, and interviewed scores of experts and stakeholders. We have also invested in the technological development needed to exploit the knowledge and resources, building toolkits for a new vision to develop policies oriented to the cultural and creative sector.
