Under the Pillar 2 of Horizon Europe, Cluster 2 “Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society” focuses on challenges pertaining to Democracy and Governance, European Cultural Heritage and the Cultural and Creative Industries, and Social and Economic Transformations.

The Cluster aims to contribute to all policy priorities of the Commission: the new push to European democracy, an economy that works for people, the European Green Deal, making Europe fit for the digital age, promoting our European way of life and making Europe stronger in the world. It also addresses issues relevant to the twin Green and Digital transitions and the post-COVID 19 recovery.
