Training and mobility of professionals
The Leonardo da Vinci programme aims to develop quality, innovation and the European dimension in vocational training, including support for cultural and linguistic training projects (arts and culture management, learning arts and crafts, heritage restoration and tourist marketing, inter-cultural communication, etc.).
The Erasmus strand of the Socrates education programme provides mobility grants for students, a sizeable proportion of whom come from the cultural sector. The importance of such mobility, involving not only students but also teachers, trainers and researchers, was emphasised by the Council on 14 December 2000.
The Culture 2000 programme contributes to the development of a European cultural space. In this context, one of its objectives is to encourage the improvement of artists. In this way, an artists residence programme encourages the international mobility and the exchanges between young European artists. The 2000 Culture programme also encourages training in the field of the dance and music.
In this same context, the Internet information site "On-the-move"
provides information on financing and administrative possibilities, legal
and tax aspects in the fields of theatre, dance, music and numerous
other disciplines in order to encourage the professionals of the European
Union and neighbouring countries to circulate from one country to another.
The MEDIA programme fosters the creation of European training courses enabling professionals in the audiovisual industry to boost their artistic, technical and commercial skills.
