E-sports and video games: statement by Laurence FARRENG (Renew, FR), rapporteur, and extracts from the debate (09/11)


Parliament demands measures to boost EU-based video-game development and increase efforts to develop and retain European talent. A draft report by the Culture Committee says the criteria to receive funding from the “Creative Europe” and “Horizon Europe” programmes do not always match the needs of small and medium-sized video game developers. MEPs also suggest exemptions in EU state aid rules to allow member state support for video game developers. Statement by Laurence FARRENG (Renew, FR), rapporteur and extracts from the debate.
