Publikation: Udredning/notatFaglig redegørelsepeer review


This EC policy brief provides evidence of the quantitative imbalance in the Creative Europe funding practices for fictional TV programming, and recommends a qualitative shift in the evaluation criteria for future funding programmes for collaborative transnational TV production. Thereby, this policy brief has implications for the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme 2021-27 and it aims to support successful European works, co-production, and talent development.

Bibliografisk note

DETECt is a research project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme. DETECt is a large collaborative initiative across ten countries, which involves scholars, teachers, students, professionals of the creative industries, and the general public in investigating how practices of transnational production, distribution and consumption in the field of popular culture have facilitated the appearance of engaging representations of Europe’s cultural identity. This policy brief concerns Creative Europe’s MEDIA subprogramme, the European Commission’s framework programme for support to the culture and audiovisual sectors (2014-2020), with special attention towards the support scheme for TV programming. The policy brief is attached as an annex to the confidential report Researching Transcultural Identities I: production perspectives, which was published November 2020.
