The European Parliament’s Culture and Education committee is responsible for education, culture, youth, sport and the cultural and educational aspects of the EU’s media policy.
The Erasmus+ Programme
The ECR Group has always supported mobility and exchange programmes seeing in them a real added value for Europeans. Overseeing the successful implementation of Erasmus+, with its seven year budget of €14.7 billion, is a key priority for the ECR’s members.
We promote facilities for the cultural and creative sector and better cooperation amongst artists and creators at European level. ECR Members also strive to balance the varying interests of improving access to culture whilst at the same time protecting the rights of authors. In today’s society we face an evolving model of accessibility to cultural content, such as music and films online, and with it the need to put in place a legal system that reflects this emerging reality faced by consumers and rights holders.
ECR Members of the CULT Committee:
The ECR Group always keeps focus on European added value in the field of Culture and Education policies in the EU.
The European Parliament’s Culture and Education committee is responsible for education, culture, youth, sport and the cultural and educational aspects of the EU’s media policy. While we recognise that education policy is the sovereign domain of Member States, there is a great deal of benefit to be had in improving cooperation and the exchange of best practice between countries.
