Research for CULT Committee - Creative Europe - Culture Sub-Programme: First Experiences with the Implementation of the New Programme

15-06-2016

The aim of this study is to provide the CULT Committee of the European Parliament with an understanding on the implementation of the CREATIVE EUROPE - CULTURE sub-programme based on Creative Europe national Desks’ first impressions. It covers a large selection of 32 Desks (82.1% of Desks). Overall, the Culture sub-programme is considered to be successfully implemented and cultural operators have a positive opinion of it. Yet it emerges a quite diversified picture in terms of successfully implemented priorities, schemes, participation and implementation conditions and Programme management. The study ends with a series of recommendations.
