- encourages cooperation across the value chain of the audiovisual industry and at EU level in order to scale up enterprises and European content globally
- nurtures talents – wherever they come from – and facilitates knowledge-sharing
- supports innovative solutions to meet the market demands and trends
- engages with audiences of all ages, especially the younger generations
