Every year, ENCATC engages in a policy debate with the aim of identifying new business models, innovative funding schemes and investment practices in the cultural and creative sector. ENCATC members, academics, researchers, cultural operators, policy makers, economics experts and students are invited to attend.
During the ENCATC General Assembly in Lecce, Italy (October 2015), the ENCATC Board decided to support and promote the development of scientific seminars, events and workshopsorganised by its members in the various regional areas. Thus, ENCATC will co-brand and ensure labelling of selected events, carefully chosen on a case by case basis, upon requests made by the organizers. This labelling must obey some basic rules.

The “ENCATC Cultural Happy Hours” is an initiative of ENCATC, the leading European network on cultural management and policy, in partnership with the Creative Europe Desks Wallonie-Bruxelles and Vlaanderen. Launched in February 2013, this is a series of cultural evenings where representatives from the cultural, business, and educational sectors are invited to enjoy an informal occasion to network and exchange ideas.
As ENCATC is one of the official members of the stakeholders' committee for the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, it has been entrusted with the task of labelling eligible events organised by the members of the network.
