EU Culture Policy

EU policy on cultural cooperation began between member states in 1992 with its inclusion in the Maastricht Treaty. The EU culture policy addresses and promotes the cultural dimension of European integration through legislation and funding. This concerns the development of cultural activity, education or research in the fields of cinema and audiovisual, publishing, music and crafts.

Many other EU policies do have a link and impact on the culture policy. NEMO publishes the links and relevant initiatives on the European level for museums and their staff.
