Strategic Press Development Fund
Decree 2012-484 of 13 April 2012 amended by Decree 2016-1161 of 26 August 2016 on the reform of press aid, the strategic fund for press development and the fund to support emergence and innovation in the press, to create the strategic fund for press development.
The Strategic Fund for the Development of the Press supports, through direct State aid, a wide variety of projects of press companies: projects representing innovation, increasing their productivity or improving and diversifying the editorial form, as well as the projects ensuring the influence of the French press in francophone countries.
Since 2014, the management of the Strategic Fund has been renovated, simplified and unified. The Directorate-General for Media and Cultural Industries continues to monitor all previous aid files from the former Modernization Assistance Fund, the former SPEL Fund and the Strategic Fund before its reform.
