  • Expanding the role of culture in the modern society and strengthening the sense of belonging to a rich and diverse European cultural community
  • Promoting European culture and the values that underpin it, such as cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and multilingualism
  • Strengthening and maintaining cultural dialogue, exchanges and cooperation with the third countries.
