Though the continuous joint work on the project will start in September only, the selected experts will be asked to start thinking about the concepts of national cultural policy since August already, so that in September they are able to suggest concrete ideas for the documents.

Selected experts and project partners will have to complete the major part of the concepts and road maps for national cultural policy of their countries by the next Annual Assembly of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum to be held in Kyiv on 20-21 November 2015.
