Creative Europe


Creative Europe is the European Commission’s framework programme to support and promote European cultural and linguistic diversity and to strengthen the  competitiveness of the cultural and creative sectors.

Thematic Priorities

The programme consists of two sub-programmes:

Culture aims to support organisations in the cultural and creative sectors to adjust to digitalisation and globalisation; and to promote cross border mobility by internationalising professions in the creative and cultural sectors. It promotes cooperation projects, European networks, translation and the spreading of literature.

MEDIA aims to give financial support to the European film and audiovisual industry through education, development, distribution and promotion; to help the European film and audiovisual sector to reach the market outside their own country and the EU borders. The sub-programme also offers support for development of computer games. Besides these, the programme contains sub-topics that target other actors in the cultural and creative sector.

Budget and co-financing

The overall budget of the programme is €1.46 million. The amount per project depends on the sub-program and the particular . On average, the programme finances 50-60% of the total project expense.

The programme’s duration is from 2014 to 2020. It is also formally open to actors in the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) on condition that they sign a specific agreement with the European Commission.
