“Culture, an economic and social asset for Europe?”

By contributing to economic growth, the cultural and creative sector takes a great part in the European development, as is proven by numerous studies. Beyond its economic weight, what is the contribution of the cultural sector to social integration and to the development of our societies on different scales? Which strategy Europe needs to deploy in order for our cultural diversity, which is an innovation and territorial dynamism factor, to be enhanced as an asset in globalization?
R.S.V.P.: To book your place, please return your confirmation before the 17th of March. You will then receive an invitation from the Ministry of Culture and Communication. For more information on the program of these two days, please visit the website
