Programme summary

Programme Concerns

Approximately 20% of the total eligible expenditure of the programme shall be set aside for cultural cooperation and exchange between the Donor States and Lithuania.

No more than 40% of the total eligible expenditure of the programme shall be available for infrastructure (hard measures).

The Ministry of Culture of Lithuania shall be Programme Partner and shall be actively involved in and effectively contributing to the development and implementation of the programme. It shall, inter alia, be actively involved in policy issues and in facilitating bilateral cooperation.

The programme shall stimulate local development and regeneration through support for cultural, creative and cultural heritage revitalization activities that involve and empower local communities, ensure social inclusion and anti-discrimination and cross-sector partnerships.

Bilateral Ambitions

€ 100 000 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.
