This infoclip illustrates the video games production and e-sports competion in Brussels (Belgium) and Milan (Italy). MEPs call on the Commission and the Council to acknowledge the strong growth and innovation potential of the EU video game ecosystem and to develop an European long-term video game strategy. They ask to increase the number of European video game productions and point that funding criteria in Creative Europe and Horizon Europe programmes are not always fit for the needs of small and medium enterprises in the sector. They also suggest to boost national support for local video game developments via exemptions in the European state aid rules. eSerie A shots are a courtesy of Infront Italy.
