The objectives of the assignment have been to study and analyse the current or ‘baseline’ situation in respect of the digital content sector in Ireland and in the six border counties of Cavan, Donegal, Leitrim, Louth, Monaghan and Sligo, comparing and contrasting the structure and performance of the sector in the two geographical areas and to set out a foresight analysis or ‘vision’ for the digital content sector by the end of the decade.

For the purposes of the study, the digital content sector is defined to include the following subsectors (in no particular order of importance): film and broadcast, animation, games development, music technology and interactive media (online interactive content).
