STRATEGIES TO A EUROPEAN WRITTEN CULTURE PRESERVATION THROUGH PUBLISHERS COOPERATION FROM LESSER USED LANGUAGES
Start date: May 2, 2016,
End date: Dec 28, 2018
PUBCOOP partnership is a cooperation between the Valencian Publishers Association (AEPV) from Spain, the Lithuanian Publishers Association (LLA) and the Romanian Publishers Association (AER) in the Creative Europe Programme. These 3 associations are working with small and independent publishers which work with Lesser Used Languages as Valencian, Lithuanian and Romanian. Those publishers, which are a relevant source of culture in Europe, have a lot of troubles to sell their products abroad, and to compete with big players on the market because of their reduced resources, and because of the reduced use of their languages. As a counterpart to these challenges there are opportunities in publishers cooperation and in associations collaboration to support companies in their internationalisation, and in the use of Internet.Starting in may 2016 and ending in december 2018, PUBCOOP project has the objective of supporting the capacity of the independent publishers in Europe to compete internationally, working in cooperation with publishers from other European countries and reinforcing their capabilities through cooperation from publisher companies and publishers associations.This objective will be developed through three activities: 1. Develop a publishers network through the implementation of a calendar of promotional events in partners countries to promote networking, cooperation and doing business. 2. Develop a website 2.0 to sell translation rights and promote publishers work in Europe as an online tool to internationalize their portfolios. 3. Develop a cooperation strategy between publishers associations to offer a coordinated support to publishers. This activity will end with a Congress to evaluate project results and new opportunities of cooperation and work.Project results have a direct impact on around 150 publishers associated to the three associations partners, and a potential effect on around 1200 small and independent publishers in Europe.
