As of mid-March, the European Audiovisual Observatory is tracking and documenting support measures for the audiovisual sector in Europe. Among the measures tracked are mechanisms such as public support, regulation, industry agreements and policy declarations.

The overview includes support measures in the Observatory’s 41 Member States – including Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden – as well as pan-European initiatives, and can be downloaded in an Excel spreadsheet.
