As Commissioner for Culture, Mariya Gabriel was responsible for the implementation of the New European Agenda for Culture, the promotion of creative industries and supporting the Creative Europe Programme. Her resignation is due to a call back to Sofia to form the next government of Bulgaria.
We had the pleasure and honor to meet Mariya Gabriel in Brussels in 2020, on the occasion of our successful “WeAre#EuropeForCulture” project.
Now she’s moving to other challenges, and we thank her for all her work in supporting digital cultural heritage. We hope our roads will cross again!
Special thanks to all stakeholders at EU, national and local level for our common work in building an innovative and creative Europe of talents. At the heart of 🇪🇺 are innovation, research, education, culture, youth. It was an honour and a responsibility to work on these topics.
