Describe the main features of the policy/measure:
The key objective of the measure is to give support for the nascent cultural entrepreneurship programmes so as to boost the fragile cultural and creative industries in the Republic of Croatia. The initial version of the Programme was developed more than ten years ago as a joint venture with the Ministry of Economy, Labour and Entrepreneurship. However, in the last couple of years, the changes were introduced to the measure changing from programme for 'Entrepreneurship in Culture' to 'Entrepreneurship in Cultural and Creative Industries' and now only being implemented by the Ministry of Culture and Media. The public call for projects is opened on a yearly basis, and it is oriented to the developing new business models that are based on the recognition of the creative competencies and to support the employment in the fields of cultural and creative industries. The programme supports activities that contribute to the development and strengthening of the capacities and competitiveness of the cultural and creative industries, enhance their visibility, and support further networking opportunities.
