Media and Audiovisual Action Plan: Commission launches interactive tool on EU support

Today the Commission has launched an interactive mapping tool to connect the media and audiovisual sectors with EU funding. It will facilitate access to information about EU funding opportunities for both the audiovisual and the news media sectors. In just a few clicks, any European media and audiovisual company – regardless of the size and the focus – will be directed to the most appropriate source of EU support suited to their needs. Commissioner for Internal Market, Thierry Breton, said: “In December, we presented our Action Plan for the media, our roadmap for the recovery and strengthening of the industry. Our objective is to ensure audiovisual and media professionals can seize all new EU funding opportunities we mobilised. As of today, a dedicated interactive tool will guide them to find appropriate EU support.” The tool includes information on the upcoming calls for funding available under the 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework. This initiative is part of a broader set of actions aimed at supporting the recovery and transformation of the audiovisual and media sectors, as announced in the Media and Audiovisual Action Plan. Audiovisual and news media professionals can also find assistance at the national level via the Creative Europe desks. You will find the mapping tool and more information on media sector related calls here.
