Green Paper: Unlocking the potential of cultural and creative industries

The objective of this consultation was to gather views on various issues impacting the cultural and creative industries in Europe, from business environment to the need to open up a common European space for culture, from capacity building to skills development and promotion of European creators on the world stage. The responses to the consultation will inform the Commission and help it ensure that EU programmes and policies involving cultural and creative industries are “fit for purpose”. The consultation, which ran 24 April to 30 July 2010 was open to individuals and organisations and in particular national, regional or local authorities, the European institutions and associations from the cultural and creative industries.
