By doing so, cultural and creative organisations from these countries can bid for funding from Creative Europe to cooperate with their EU counterparts and receive support for the translation of literary works.
They can also join cultural and creative networks and platforms and benefit from transnational exchange of know-how and data-collection. Bosnia and Herzegovina will participate in both the Culture and the MEDIA sub-programmes of Creative Europe; the other two countries are involved only in the Culture arm of the programme for the time being. Serbia and Albania signed similar agreements in June (IP/14/698 and IP/14/716).
