Anna Kanerva

I work as a senior researcher and vice director at Cupore in Helsinki. At Cupore I have worked with a wide range of issues over the years, including comparative cultural policies, mapping and analysis, creative industries policies and cultural employment and cultural management education. I also actively work in the development, administration and communications activities of our research center. Lately in my research I have concentrated especially on cultural heritage policies and questions relating to the digitalization of culture and data. I am also planning my doctorate in cultural policy in the impacts of digitalization on European cultural policies.

My research interests include international, comparative cultural policies, intergovernmental organizations (EU, Council of Europe, UNESCO), the knowledge base of cultural policies, cultural and creative industries and cultural heritage policies. I am the Finnish expert in the Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends –network and work as the managing editor of the Nordic Journal of Cultural Policy.

I hold an MA in Ethnology and M.Soc.Sc in Sociology (Master’s Programme in Cultural Policy) from the University of Jyväskylä. I have also studied Organization and Management at the Aalto University School of Economics. Before Cupore, I worked at the Master’s Programme in Cultural Policy at the University of Jyväskylä and as a researcher in a private cultural consultancy.
