This compendium compiles the recommendations included in the independent ex post evaluations carried out for the Commission for the European Capitals of Culture 2007 to 2016.

The aim of this compendium is to make these recommendations available in an easy-touse format as a rich resource for cities wishing to bid for the ‘European Capital of Culture’ (ECoC) title. It is hoped that it will help them learn from past lessons and good practice and use the bidding exercise as a way to move forward culture in their medium to longer term overall development. The compendium is also meant as a tool for cities developing their ECoC year so that they can benefit from past title-holders and avoid some of the pitfalls and difficulties that the latter met all along the way to the delivery of their ECoC.
