As from January 2017, Culture Lab takes part in a technical assistance providing advisory and capacity building services as well as technical support to the European Commission with a view to:

– Support the continuing definition and/or adaptation of EU policies on culture in development
– Improve the quality of the EU assistance (programs and projects) on culture for development cooperation
– Enhance knowledge sharing, communication and visibility in the Culture sector.

This 2-years mission (recently extended for 2 more years until December 2021) is implemented within an international consortium composed of B&S Europe (Brussels, BE – leading organisation), CUMEDIAE (Brussels, BE) and Culture Lab (Brussels, BE), associated partners. The technical assistance is leaded by Gian Giuseppe Simeone, executive manager at Culture Lab.
