Cultural activities at European level - Participation in European Programmes
One of the main objectives is to foster co-operation in educational and cultural activities amongst European partners.
The Ministry of Education and Culture in the form of matching grants maintain provisions for the support of Cypriot cultural agencies whose projects receive EU funding (i.e. Culture, MEDIA). It is implemented mainly through supporting cultural and educational projects that fall into the context of EU cooperation/programmes.
It is envisaged that through the above mentioned programmes as well as through other initiatives at European level, intercultural awareness, mobility and innovative approaches in the field of education and culture by including new technologies and promoting the acquisition of new languages, are promoted.
Challenges identified in the implementation of this measure: There is a lack of statistical evidence and qualitative data with respect to the impact of this measure.
