The cooperative accord on culture and education proposed in the White Paper [ref] demonstrates our undiminished commitment to supporting European culture and our ambitions for collaboration on education and training, including the provision of opportunities for young people. This will be a priority for negotiations on the future relationship.

The Political Declaration is a significant step towards delivering on this proposal, setting out that the UK and EU will establish terms for UK participation in EU programmes in areas of shared interest, including culture and education, and wider dialogue and exchanges with a view to identify opportunities to cooperate, share best practice and act together. Both sides recognise the importance of mobility and the temporary movement of objects and equipment in enabling this.
