The objectives of the EUSBSR Policy Area CULTURE are implemented by means of flagships. These projects demonstrate the progress of the EUSBSR, and may serve as pilot examples for the desired action. Once approved, a flagship is listed in the Action Plan. A project can be listed as a flagship in one single priority area / horizontal action only. Flagships play a crucial role in meeting the targets of the EUSBSR and put into practice the objectives of the Policy Area Culture.
A flagship must fulfil the following three key criteria:
it must have a high macro-regional impact
it contributes to fulfilling the objectives, indicators and targets of the EUSBSR
it is related to the implementation of one or more actions of the priority area/ horizontal action concerned
