English
Start date: 
Wednesday, 1 January 2014
Deadline: 
Thursday, 31 December 2020
Overview and objectives: 

Creative Europe is the new EU programme to support European cinema and the cultural and creative sectors, enabling them to increase their contribution to jobs and growth. With a budget of €1.46 billion for 2014-2020, it will support tens of thousands of artists, cultural and audiovisual professionals and organisations in the performing arts, fine arts, publishing, film, TV, music, interdisciplinary arts, heritage, and the video games industry. The funding will allow them to operate across Europe, to reach new audiences and to develop the skills needed in the digital age. By helping European cultural works to reach audiences in other countries, the programme will also contribute to safeguarding cultural and linguistic diversity.

The new programme takes account of the challenges created by globalisation and digital technologies, which are changing the ways cultural works are made, distributed and accessed, as well as transforming business models and revenue streams. These developments also create opportunities for the cultural and creative sectors. The programme seeks to help them seize these opportunities, so that they benefit from the digital shift and create more jobs and international careers.

The general objectives of the Programme shall be the following: 

(a) to foster the safeguarding and promotion of European cultural and linguistic diversity; 

(b) to strengthen the competitiveness of the cultural and creative sectors with a view to promoting smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. 

The specific objectives of the Programme shall be the following: 

(a) to support the capacity of the European cultural and creative sectors to operate transnationally; 

(b) to promote the transnational circulation of cultural and creative works and operators and reach new audiences in Europe and beyond; 

(c) to strengthen the financial capacity of the cultural and creative sectors, and in particular small and medium-sized enterprises and organisations;
