MDI implemented the Ministry of Education and Culture project to develop a statistical and knowledge base for arts and culture. The development of the knowledge base for the arts and culture sector was one of the objectives of the Ministry of Culture and the Culture 2025 Strategy while also being an integral part of other strategic goals in the culture and art sector, such as the reform of the state aid system for the performing arts. The aim here was that the information and statistics to be produced are relevant and sufficiently consistent both in the various fields of culture and in the overall monitoring and evaluation of the effectiveness of cultural policy.
