Programme summary

Programme Concerns

At least 12% of the total eligible expenditure shall be set aside for cultural cooperation and exchange between the Donor States and the Czech Republic.

No more than 60% of the total eligible expenditure of the programme shall be available for infrastructure (hard measures).

The concrete measures directly targeting Roma inclusion shall be further explored during the preparation of the concept note.

The Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic shall act as Programme Partner and shall be actively involved in and effectively contributing to the development and implementation of the programme.

The programme shall consist of cultural heritage management related to the revitalising of heritage and contributing to social and economic development.

The programme shall contribute to a greater awareness about the culture of social, ethnic and cultural minorities. It shall aim at improving the access of minority groups (such as Roma) to culture and at addressing the needs of these minorities.

The programme shall include support for cultural and creative activities with a cultural entrepreneurial outlook stimulating social inclusion and local development.

The programme shall include support for cultural heritage of minorities (including Roma and Jewish heritage).

Bilateral Ambitions

€ 242,000 shall be allocated to the programme from the fund for bilateral relations. This does not prevent the Joint Committee for Bilateral Funds from allocating additional funds to the programme.
