Legislative initiative put forward by the European Commission in May 2018, which aims at setting up the Creative Europe programme for the period 2021-2027.

Further information:

The Creative Europe programme aims to support the European audiovisual, cultural and creative sector. Its funding schemes encourage the audiovisual, cultural and creative players to operate across Europe, to reach new audiences and to develop the skills needed in the digital age. It is proposed that the programme retains its original three strands structure: culture, media a cross-sectoral. The proposed Regulation would repeal Regulation (EU) No 1295/2013, and it was put together in line with a Commission's Communication on a 'New European Agenda for Culture'.

The proposal was put forward on 30 May 2018 in the framework of the discussions on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for the period 2021-2027. It is part of the 'Investing in People' chapter of the overall proposal for the EU's long-term budget. Under this proposal, the programme was subject to a budget reinforcement. On 20 December, the Council of the European Union reached a partial position on this initiative, pending overall agreement on the long-term budget.The European Parliament called for further strengthening of the programme budget, which was later rejected by the European Commission. The Parliament's position was adopted in March 2019.
