Following on from the previous Culture Programme and MEDIA programme, Creative Europe, with a budget of €1.46 billion (9% higher than its predecessors), will support Europe's cultural and creative sectors.

Creative Europe is responsible for the co-funding of the project, and in doing so:

  • Helps the cultural and creative sectors seize the opportunities of the digital age and globalisation;

  • Enables the sectors to reach their economic potential, contributing to sustainable growth, jobs, and social cohesion

  • Give Europe's culture and media sectors access to new international opportunities, markets, and audiences.
