European Commission unveils plan to boost cultural and creative sectors


The European Commission has launched the programme ‘Creative Europe’ to support workers in cinema, TV, culture, music, performing arts, heritage and related areas.

The programme intends to be a necessary boost for the cultural and creative industries, which are a major source of jobs and growth in Europe.

EU support will help to make the most of the opportunities created by globalization and the digital shift. It will also enable to overcome challenges such as market fragmentation and difficulties in accessing financing, as well as contributing to better policy-making by making it easier to share know-how and experience.

‘Creative Europe’ will build on the experience and success of the Culture and MEDIA programmes which have supported the cultural and audiovisual sectors for more than 20 years.

The programme will have a budget of €1.8 billion for the period 2014-2020, striving for the strengthening of policy cooperation and fostering innovative approaches to audience building and new business models.
