This report illustrates the achievements of Creative Europe in 2018, in line with its mission to safeguard cultural diversity and strengthen the competitiveness of the cultural and creative sectors, in particular the audiovisual sector.

Cover of the publication

In presenting the wide range of activities undertaken and the results achieved, the report shows the value of Creative Europe as a whole, which is greater than the sum of its individual parts.  The results of the Programme need to be assessed both in terms of their cultural and artistic value as well as their economic value, reflecting the dual nature of the cultural and creative sectors.

To do so, qualitative and quantitative evidence has been drawn from a variety of sources, including the programme beneficiaries, and have used performance indicators where relevant.

This Monitoring Report is a response to the recommendation of the mid-term evaluation of Creative Europe to strengthen the monitoring of results on an annual basis. As such it aims to shed further light on the strengths of the Programme and the areas for improvement in the context of the ongoing discussions on the successor Programme under the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027.
