Moldova joins the Creative Europe programme

Moldova has become the second neighbourhood country to join the Creative Europe programme, following the recent addition of Georgia to the list of countries eligible to take part in Creative Europe.  

On 18 March 2015, Tibor Navracsics, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, and Monica Babuc, the Moldovan Minister of Culture, signed an agreement on Moldovan participation in the Creative Europe programme, which will allow the creative, cultural and audiovisual sectors to benefit from the Culture and MEDIA sub-programmes. 

Navracsics announced: 

"It is my great pleasure to welcome the Republic of Moldova to the Creative Europe Programme. From now on, cultural and creative organisations in Moldova will be able to get support to work together with and learn from cultural and creative organisations from all over Europe. The programme will allow them to open up to Europe and the world. They will be able to further strengthen the capacity of their cultural and creative sectors by taking part in cultural cooperation projects, literary translation schemes and cultural networks. And as of this year, they will also be able to participate in audiovisual training events and festivals."
