Within the scope of this Agenda, the institutions of the European Union and the competent institutions in the member countries organize various projects and activities. The studies under the Creative Europe Programme carried out also to emphasize the common cultural values throughout the European Union and the common historical heritage shared by the member countries.
In the context of this agenda, The Creative Europe Program (2014-2020) is the most current framework programme of the European Commission for support to the culture and audiovisual sectors. The main purpose of this program is to strengthen the social and economic development by highlighting the cultural market and creative sectors.
