The CROSS-SECTORAL strand aims at reinforcing collaboration between different cultural and creative sectors, in order to help them address the common challenges they face and find innovative new solutions.

This is achieved for instance through policy cooperation, the services provided by the Creative Europe desks, and the Creative Innovation Lab. Creative Europe also offers funding to the news media sector.

For further information, see European Commission Culture & Creativity website. More detailed information on the application process and Call of proposals is available on the Funding & tender opportunities portal (FTOP).
