The Music Moves Europe Talent Awards are supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission and are part of the Music Moves Europe (MME) framework. Music Moves Europe is the overarching framework of the European Commission’s initiatives and actions in support of the European music sector.
While music is being consumed more than ever, artists and producers claim that they do not receive fair remuneration for the online exploitation of their work. European content, especially from smaller countries, struggles for visibility on big streaming platforms compared to that of American and British artists.
Music Moves Europe aims to help the music sector flourish, to adapt to new challenges and to reap the benefits of digitization. Through MME the Commission wants to build on and strengthen further the sector’s strong assets: creativity, diversity and competitiveness.
Its specific objectives are to:
- promote creativity and innovation
- safeguard and expand the diversity of European music
- help the sector adapt to and benefit from digitization.
