Creative Europe Expands in the Balkans


    Three new countries, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, have signed agreements to participate in the EU’s Creative Europe programme.

    Cultural and creative organisations from the new member countries can bid for funding from the Creative Europe programme for the translation of literary works and join cultural and creative networks and platforms to exchange know-how.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina will participate in both the Culture and the MEDIA sub-programmes of Creative Europe. Montenegro and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) are involved only in the Culture arm of the programme. Serbia and Albania signed similar agreements in June.
