Forthcoming policy developments

The National Youth Strategy 2015-2025 evaluation report states that it is necessary in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and other state bodies to conduct a more detailed analysis of the causes of public policy failures in the area of youth participation in cultural activities and in the coming period through a wider repertoire of activities to make greater efforts to support creativity and increase the use of cultural content among young people.  

In its Action plan, the Smart Specialization Strategy 2020 -2027 predicts developing a master programme for connecting arts and information technologies. This measure entails funding a multi-disciplinary three-semester master’s programme in ICT, coding, data analysis, organisational sciences, and the arts, with at least one short course in each of these disciplines. This programme would meet the needs of the creative industry by introducing new university courses. It is envisaged to develop the course in 2021.
