The EU project Interact Point Vienna has recently published a document on the Cultural and Creative industries sector in Europe. The writers focus on the inspirational and informative role of culture in Europe, and how this is developing itself. Read on and learn more about how European Territorial Cooperation programmes are supporting CCI projects in the current period.

The publication aims to draw a picture of the role of culture and creative industries (CCI) in Europe and in European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) in particular. The publication is a result of desk research, personal interviews and questionnaires. By using KEEP as a starting point IP Vienna analysed 55 % of the ETC programmes (not including IPA and ENPI) with 583 CCI projects. In the publication you will find information on the types of CCI projects and their frequent project activities in the current programme period. Each of these chapters provides also some examples of successful cooperation projects.

In addition you will find three examples of capitalisation initiatives in the culture and creative industries field undertaken by following programmes: INTERREG IVC; Central Europe and Italy-France Maritime. The last section of the publications provides and outlook to the next funding period referring to funding opportunities, tips form CCI projects for newcomers and statements of ETC managers on cultural projects in the future.
