European projects

The Goethe-Institut strengthens the European integration process and conveys the cultural diversity of Europe as well as Germany's contribution to it. It works in and for Europe. It advocates a common European cultural space based on cultural diversity and autonomy. At the same time, the Goethe-Institut reflects on "Europe" as a topic both within and outside the borders of the European Union. Here we present you our projects.

Creative Flip

The culture and creative sectors perform various tasks for the economy and society. However, there are still structural problems which are holding these sectors back from achieving their full growth potential. The Creative FLIP project – co-funded by the European Union – is aiming to resolve this situation. Its main objective is to establish constructive and sustainable framework conditions in the fields of finance, learning, innovation and patenting for the cultural and creative sectors in Europe.
