Answer given by Mr Navracsics on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-003604/2018

In 2018, a large number of initiatives and events are taking place all across Europe as part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage which will enable people to get more involved with their cultural heritage. In order to offer financial support to cultural heritage operators, a dedicated call for cooperation projects relating to the European Year was launched under the Creative Europe programme.

A total of seventy-seven applications were received and of these twenty-nine were successful.

The breakdown of applications has been done per country and not per region. The countries that are the lead applicants for the projects and benefited the most are: Italy, Belgium and France. More information on the selection results (including project partners) is available on the Internet(1).

Regarding the funds available for the Europen Year of Cultural Heritge, the Commission would like to point out that in addition to the EUR 5 million allocated under the Creative Europe programme, the European Year is benefitting from initiatives and projects supported under diverse EU policy areas. In fact, other EU funding instruments, including Horizon 2020, Erasmus+, Europe for Citizens and the European Structural and Investment Funds, are also contributing to the success of the European Year. Successful projects cover a broad range of innovative collaborations between organisations from different Member States and will produce valuable and interesting contemporary creations.
