Austria/ 3.4 International cultural co-operation  

3.4.6 Other relevant issues

In the framework of the EU's regional development policy, Austria has developed extensive support programmes in all its provinces with the objective of "regional competition and employment", in particular involving arts and cultural projects and their contribution to regional development. Commissioned by the former bmu:kk, in 2010-2011, the österreichischekulturdokumentationprepared the study "The Creative Motor for Regional Development: Arts and Culture Projects and the EU Structural Funding in Austria". It includes a survey and analysis of arts, culture and creative-industries projects that have been co-funded by the EU in the framework of the programmes of the EU Structural Funds. Austria thereby has been one of the first EU member states to show the volumes and extent of the co-funding of culture by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the European Social Fund (ESF) and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD): between 2007 and 2010, 534 – mostly cross-border – projects were EU-co-funded in Austria with EUR 78.8 million.

Because of the surprisingly large volume and the poor accessibility to information at the same time, the Arts and Culture Division of the Federal Chancellery has commissioned a handbook for the EU-funding period 2014-2020: At a Glance. EU Regional Supports for Art and Culture (produced by österreichischekulturdokumentation) presents profiles of all current programmes in Austria and offers concrete and practical support for Austrian artists, cultural workers and institutions.
