Policy Grants CE

As part of our work, we support policy development for the creative industries sector in Ukraine.

Annually we offer grant funding for collaboration with a UK partner to research one of the pillars of the creative economy ecosystem of Ukraine and develop recommendations to implement.


In 2021 we awarded a grant to the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine to work together with the Centre for Economic Recovery – an independent platform designed to provide analytical support to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the UK-based consultancy Counterculture Partnership LLP. Together they researched the situation of enterprise education for creative industries in Ukraine.

The work on the study lasted from November 2021 to May 2022. The report was aimed at identifying the main policy issues of Ukraine's education system in the field of creative industries, studying the UK's relevant best practices pertaining to education in creative industries and drafting recommendations for the Ukrainian government. 

The recommendations were structured as a policy brief that outlines the main measures to be taken by the public authorities, development partners and universities to help creative industries' education to recover and develop after the war in the short-, mid- and long-term.


In 2022-2023 our grant supported a joint work by the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation and the UK company Counterculture LLP to developed recommendations about intellectual property and copyright for creatives.
