The EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme ran from 2014 to 2020, making available €77 billion in funding for research and innovation. Structured around the objectives defined for its three priorities: "Excellent science", "Industrial leadership" and "Societal challenges", culture came primarily under the umbrella of 'Societal Challenges'. A booklet annexed to this report, gives details of $133m worth of research projects relevant to the Convention, under way during the reporting period. The new Horizon Europe (HE) research and innovation programme from 2021-2027 includes a dedicated research “cluster” for Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society, under HE’s second pillar, Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness. The Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society cluster has a budget of 2.28 billion euros, with 400m available from 2021-2022. It is focused in 3 intervention areas, all relevant to the 2005 Convention: democracy and governance, social and economic transformations and European cultural heritage and the cultural and creative industries. One of its specific priorities is to “support the emergence of new forms of cultural expression”. The following planned topics are highly relevant to cultural and creative industries, and there is a desire to actively involve CCIs in the research: HORIZON-CL2-2021-HERITAGE-01-03: CCIs as a driver of innovation and competitiveness HORIZON-CL2-2022-HERITAGE-01-05: Towards a competitive, fair and sustainable European music ecosystem HORIZON-CL2-2022-HERITAGE-01-06: Increase the potential of the international competitiveness of the European filmmaking industry HORIZON-CL2-2021-HERITAGE-01-04: Preserving & enhancing cultural heritage with advanced digital technologies HORIZON-CL2-2022-HERITAGE-01-04: Traditional crafts for the future: a new approach HORIZON-CL2-2022-HERITAGE-01-09: Games and culture shaping our society HORIZON-CL2-2022-HERITAGE-01-10: The New European Bauhaus – shaping a greener and fairer way of life in creative and inclusive societies through Architecture, Design and Arts
Quels sont les résultats atteints jusqu’à présent grâce à la mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure ?: 
A booklet annexed to this report (derived from the EU’s open access CORDIS platform), gives details of $133m worth of research projects relevant to the Convention, being undertaken during the reporting period. Much of this research is still ongoing, and results are not available. It is notable that the first featured project in the attached booklet specifically references the Convention. Entitled “Protecting the Right to Culture of Persons with Disabilities and Enhancing Cultural Diversity through European Union Law”, this research hosted by the National University of Ireland began in 2020 and aims to bridge the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the UNESCO 2005 Convention. The other projects listed are conducting research across the cultural and creative sectors (including architecture, design, literature, opera, textiles) and across a range of themes, from education and social inclusion to urban regeneration, creative economies, and tourism. There is also a significant body of research described in the booklet relevant to the diversity of cultural expressions in the digital environment, including projects on copyright, content personalization, analytics and recommendations, media platforms and blockchains.
