Creative Europe Programme fully operational in 2014
Today Member States in the Council today approved Creative Europe, the new programme supporting the cultural and creative sectors.
With a budget of nearly €1.46 billion over the next seven years, a 9% increase on current levels, Creative Europe will give thousands of people in cinema, TV, culture, music, performing arts, heritage and related areas the opportunity to increase their international visibility in Europe and beyond.
The new programme was adopted by the European Parliament on 19 November (IP/13/1114) and is due to be signed by the Parliament and Council on 11 December.
The programme will enter into force in January.
