Europe | The European Commission has published the European music export strategy report

Through the “Music Moves Europe” initiative, the European Union looks at new ways to articulate dialogue, policy and support for the music sector in Europe, with the objective of finding solutions to some of the issues faced by its stakeholders.

In particular, in 2018, the European Commission launched a call for tenders to develop a “Study on a European Export Strategy”.

The research has been carried out by a consortium led by Le Bureau Export with MICA, KEA and Factory 92 as partners. EMEE – European Music Exporters Exchange has been deeply involved in the study through a survey EU countries export strategy, in the international reports with experts from the network and by elaborating the strategy out of the analysis done throughout the year of the study.

This project’s aim was to develop a European Music Export Strategy that promotes Europe’s music diversity and talent beyond European borders and that enhances the competitiveness of Europe’s music sector on the international market. The study also took stock of existing national strategies for music export and complements existing initiatives (including those co-funded by the EU) to encourage the cross-border circulation of emerging talents and repertoire within and beyond Europe, and test ideas for promoting music export in the future, including through Creative Europe.

The study, published yesterday, looks into the main challenges, opportunities and operational tools to increase the cross-border circulation of European repertoire in the world. The study is an effort to define those challenges and has come up with a toolbox to address them in a practical manner that can be carried out by the European music sector with the Commission’s support
