Main feature of the measure:

Greece participates actively in all of the European Union organs and institutions. Greece’s presence in international fora has a major historical dimension (founding member of the UN, longstanding member of the EU) and is of particular importance given that respect for international law and human rights are a fundamental component of Greek foreign policy. Greece actively participates in the institutional procedures. Our country attributes particular significance to the Council of Europe’s role. Greece, also, participates in all groups of Open Method of Coordination meetings.

The Ministry of Culture and Sports participates in international art exhibitions, Book Fairs and music exhibitions (MIDEM & WOMEX).

The Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs coordinates the activities of the European "e-Twinning" program.Greece is among the top-ranking countries as regards the participation of schools, the teaching community and pupils in the program.

Many of the country’s research institutes collaborate with their counterparts worldwide and participate in international networks and programs on cultural issues.

For the purpose of promoting the diversity of cultural expressions, the public Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (ERT SA) cooperates with the EBU (of which it is a founding member), as well as with COPEAM, in the exchange of cultural programs.  ERT SA also participates in the EUSCREEN  program with documentaries from its archives (cultural and educational programs from 1980 to 2012).    

A number of Greek Municipalities participate as active members in European and other international networks of cities, in order to exploit the potential for further development through peer-to-peer learning and the exchange of know-how and by enhancing their position in the area of cultural and creative industries and thematic tourism, among other areas.
