Music moves Europe – opportunities and challenges of the music sector in the digital age
20 June @ 9:00 am - 21 June @ 6:00 pm EEST
The event is organised by the Ministry of Culture and National Identity – Project Management Unit, in the context of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. It will consist in a workshop on copyright in the music sector (20 June) and a conference connected to the policy pillar of the Music Moves Europe initiative (21 June). The reunion is organised back-to-back with another RO PRES conference starting on 19 June, New Challenges regarding Copyright in the Digital Single Market, with which it shares the common workshop.
In the context of the Music Moves Europe overarching framework for EU’s strategic actions in support of the sector, the European Commission launched a dialogue with the music industry in 2015. With the new Work Plan for Culture 2019-2022, the Council of the EU also decided to focus on Member States’ cooperation in the field of music. This conference aims at bringing together all sides thereby contributing to a better understanding about the music sector and the challenges it faces, and a closer collaboration with the policy level, with the ultimate goal to enhance European musical diversity and the competitiveness of Europe’s music sector.
RO PRES 2019 will work towards identifying transferrable best practices in terms of public intervention for the music sector and suitable policy measures at national level. We will discuss topical subjects for the music sector of relevance for public policy making in the EU and its Member States, such as: music festivals and urban development, the promotion of European musical diversity, the level playing field in the sector, the cross-border circulation of music, the entrepreneurial dimension of the industry. The focus of this event will be the developments in the music sector and the related policy initiatives at Member States and EU levels.
The event will take place in Aula room of the Ministry of Culture and National Identity (no 22 Unirii Blvd, Bucharest). The draft agenda is available here.
