Synergies between public policies and programmes 

The collaboration of institutions and organizations is generally linked to strategic and conceptual documents or laws and coordination structures are designed to put these strategies/conceptions into practice. 

In the field of culture and art: 

  • Inter-ministerial working group for the monitoring and implementation of the Strategy of Creative Industry Development in Slovak Republic, 

  • there are representatives from 9 ministries, the Industrial Property Office of the Slovak Republic and the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic. 

The Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic supports cooperation between actors in the cultural and creative industries: between regional and local self-government, educational and research institutions and sectoral organizations. Currently, the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic participates in international projects within the INTERREG EUROPE program: CREADIS 3 (Intelligent and Creative Regions) and A.L.I.C.E. (Animation League for Increased Cooperation in Europe).  


The activities of the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic, including the offers of young people involved in cultural and creative activities, are presented on social networks - the Platform for Cultural and Creative Industries


Digital Slovakia and the creative industries are also important cross-sectoral initiatives. The domain focuses on 3 development trends: Industry 4.0, Digital Technologies for Society and Creative Industries.

Partnerships between the culture and creative sectors, youth organisations and youth workers 

There are no programs, policies or initiatives of national authorities fostering partnership among culture and creative sectors, youth organizations and youth workers 


ICP (8.2.)Kolaboratórium project: Despite open borders and reduced language barriers, the Slovak culture remains isolated and unrecognised in the European area. The project is an attempt to specify cooperation with more successful partners. The project is focused on the essential conditions for promotion of personalities and cultural fields in the European cultural area.
