BUSINESSES in the East of England are to learn how to get the most out of the European Union funding programmes for culture and media projects at a conference in Luton today (Friday).

The event is being organised by the East of England Regional Assembly, in partnership with the East of England Development Agency, and will offer first-hand information on how to access the substantial funding available.

The event is chaired by David Morrall, EEDA's international director and a member of the Arts Council England, East. Speakers include funding representatives from MEDIA Desk UK, Screen East Venture Capital Fund, the Arts Council and EUCLID (until recently Cultural Contact Point UK).

John Marshall, the regional international trade adviser for the creative and media industries, will explain the support that UK Trade & Investment and East of England International can provide to businesses in the area.
