The consultation of stakeholders
In the preparation of the Communication the Commission intends to take the views of stakeholders fully into account.
Therefore, we invited stakeholders (in particular organisations and individuals active in the cultural sector, including cultural industries) to express their views and opinions on the questions to be raised in the Communication. We would like to thank all participants in the online consultation.
Following this on-line consultation, DG Education and Culture (DG EAC) organise a public hearing in 4 December 2006 in Brussels.

Results of the online consultation
The online form of the questionnaire (word format) was available until the 9th of November.
