The project leaders of INVENT (Susanne Janssen), MESOC (Pau Raussel Köster), and UNCHARTED (Arturo Rodriquez Morató), presented and discussed their respective projects during a panel debate on The Social Impacts of Cultural Policies. The debate was organized in the framework of the online workshop hosted by the MESOC project, which took place on 3 March 2021 and was very well attended. All three projects are funded under the H2020-programme The societal value of culture and the impact of cultural policies in Europe. The three projects complement one another very well, as they cover similar ground, but have different focal points and approaches. The project teams strive to collaborate and create synergies wherever possible.
