New look for the Open Method of Coordination expert reports on priorities of culture policy

Four new online policy reports on the strategic use of the Structural Funds for culture, access to culture, the mobility of artists & cultural professionals, as well as the mobility of collections have been given a facelift!

We invite you to browse through the new, user-friendly and highly readable format of the reports, as well as their accompanying Executive Summaries, available for the first time in English, French and German.

The four reports were completed in 2012 by four separate expert groups which were convened through the Open Method of Coordination under the Work Plan for Culture 2011-2014. The Open Method of Coordination is a voluntary cooperation between EU member States that aims at improving policy-making by exchanging lessons learnt in the field. The method was extended to the field of culture in 2008, following the adoption of the European Agenda for Culture in 2007.
