Internationalisation of the intermediary stage for cultural exports

Swedish Arts Council, Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The support took the form of a collaborative project that ran from 2016 to 2018 in which the Swedish Arts Council and the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth collaborated on a grant for cultural exports. The purpose of the grant was to promote the internationalisation of intermediary actors (including agents and producers, along with galleries and publishers) that fall outside the scope of the Swedish Arts Council's regular grants scheme. The Swedish Arts Council administered a total of SEK 1 million per year over three years, provided by the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth. There was a very large number of applications, and external follow-up has been carried out that shows that the project was very successful.
