Field: Creative Europe Programme

Target group: General public/stakeholders

Period of Consultation: 23 January – 24 April 2017

Status: Closed

Results of the consultation and next steps: 

The results of the public consultation were used alongside other data and evidence to inform the independent mid-term evaluation of the Creative Europe Programme.

Further to the open public consultation the mid-term evaluation included two targeted surveys (one for the Culture sub-programme and another for MEDIA) among the beneficiaries of Creative Europe.

For the results of these consultations you may refer to the:

For the detailed results of the Mid-term Evaluation, and the adopted Commission Report (30 April 2018), please visit webpages Report from the Commission and Staff working document.


The aim of the consultation was to gather comments and perspectives from various stakeholders and the general public on the relevance of the Creative Europe programme's objectives, the effectiveness of the measures taken to achieve them and the efficiency of their implementation.

It also gathered views on the coherence of the programme and its added value in relation to the challenges and opportunities in cultural and creative sectors, compared to what could be achieved by Member States themselves.

The aim of the consultation was to gather views particularly from those who have not yet been subject to any of the surveys related to the evaluation.

The consultation covered the Creative Europe predecessor's programmes (e.g. Culture , MEDIA 2007 and MEDIA Mundus programme) and contained forward looking questions regarding a possible successor programme to Creative Europe in 2020.

Submission of contributions:

The European Commission encouraged stakeholders to use an on-line questionnaire to express their views. This helped to optimise the exploitation and sharing of answers

Initially, they were asked to provide background information (name of the individual or organisation, type of organisation or company, country of activities). This information was mandatory in order to process the replies (with the possibility to reply anonymously: see protection of personal data below).

The questionnaire was based on a number of closed and open questions. It was possible to answer "I don't know" to some closed questions. There were also free text boxes which enabled respondents to give alternatives to the options provided in the multiple-choice format. The duration to complete the questionnaire was 10-60 minutes, depending on the level of detail of the answers.

The respondents were able to answer to the questionnaire in any of the official languages of the European Union.
