I welcome this blog of the Policy Department responsible for research for the Committee on Culture and Education.
On this page, you will find all relevant information about research publications prepared for the CULT Committee and on the ongoing activities of the Policy Department in support of the Committee.
The research is produced upon request of the CULT coordinators, and the studies revolve closely around the core topics the CULT Committee is responsible for: the dissemination of culture, cultural heritage, cultural and linguistic diversity, education, the audiovisual policy, the cultural and educational aspects of the information society, youth, sports and communication policy. Recent examples include presentations on cultural work with refugees, modernisation of higher education and on the European Solidarity Corps and volunteering. Naturally, the research papers are by independent experts and may not reflect the views of the Committee.
The blog makes it easy and quick for CULT Committee Members to access expert input. Assistants and Political Group staff as well as stakeholders and external experts can also benefit. For experts, there is also notice of contract opportunities. The blog features updates on the ongoing and future work of the Policy Department in support of CULT, and features links to the Factsheets produced by the Policy Department in the CULT policy fields.
New items on the blog and other information of interest to CULT are publicized on Twitter @PolicyCULT .
The address of the blog, for your favourites, is https://research4committees.blog/cult/
I hope that this website will prove useful for your work in the CULT Committee.
