no room for the Arts …?


Johannes Hahn, former Austrian science minister and Austrian EU Commissioner is now the new EU – DG for Regional Policy leading DG Research (RTD); Joint Research Centre (JRC); European Research Council (ERC). How well will the arts flourish in relation to the science and technology priorities as the EU furthers its aims for innovation and measurable economic value to lead research in the Universities?

Androulla Vassiliou has been the EU Commissioner for Health. She is now in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth and as such one would presume she holds responsibilities for the Arts under the banner of Culture. With a background in Law and a strong political family (her husband being a former President of Cypress) where will the arts find its health in this seemingly overcrowded space?
