MESOC aimed to establish a European wide community of interest. Following our last conference, we launched the MESOC declaration establishing the principles of a community of practice committed to fostering the role of culture in societal transformation, gathering numerous signatures.

Furthermore, Eurocities supported the project by a number of dissemination activities with both its associates and the general public, paving the way for the creation of a European community of interest around the project and the implementation of its results as a way to measure societal impacts of cultural policies.

The goal being take-up and establishment of its innovations, the creation of a network of Cities interested in following on the track of its results complemented the other outreach and policy influence actions pertaining to the Broadening phase, as required to bring the project results to the next level.
