Creative Europe

The EU invests 1.46 billion € (9% higher than the previous programme) in the audiovisual and cultural sectors through the Creative Europe Programme (2014-2020), which replaces the previous Culture and MEDIA programmes. Creative Europe will support: a. culture sector initiatives, such as those promoting cross-border cooperation, platforms, networking, and literary translation and b. audiovisual sector initiatives, such as those promoting the development, distribution or access to audiovisual projects.

Creative Europe’s aim is to help the cultural and creative sectors seize the opportunities of the digital age and globalisation, enable the sectors to reach their economic potential, thus contributing to sustainable growth, jobs, and social cohesion and give Europe’s culture and media sectors access to new international opportunities, markets and audiences.
