The kick off meeting of the two-year Jean Monnet project entitled ‘European Union Policies and the Platformisation of Cultural and Audio-visual Sectors – platEU’ co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union was held online on Monday, the 26th of April 2021 from 11:00h to 13:30h. It was attended by over thirty participants from different parts of Croatia: from policy makers, cultural workers, researchers and students of cultural studies. The first part of the meeting was used to present the thematic framework and the aims of the project, as well as in introducing the Organisational Board and the project partners. The second part of the meeting was used to discuss the research results on the online survey on the digitalisation of culture and cultural practices during the pandemic. IRMO is the main beneficiary of this two-year project that will promote discussion and reflection on the role EU policies have on the online platforms impacting cultural and audio-visual sectors. The project will be implemented through events, research and dissemination.
