New Creative Europe Programme launched

The European Commission’s new Creative Europe programme 2021 – 2027 was launched on 26 May. This new programme brings €2.44 billion of support to the cultural and creative sectors.

With its 3 sub-programmes – the Culture strand, the MEDIA strand and the Cross-sectoral strand, Creative Europe aims to:

  • enhance artistic and cultural cooperation at European level;
  • encourage the competitiveness, innovation, and sustainability of the European audiovisual sector;
  • promote cross-sectoral innovative and collaborative actions, including support for media literacy and a diverse, independent and pluralistic news media environment.

The formal adoption of the legal basis of the programme is expected in early June and the first calls for proposals will be announced in the coming weeks. Read more here.
