In addition to its programmes dedicated to export, Sacem is involved in specific funds which are mutualised with professional and institutionnal networks such as Bureauexport, Institut français, AJC etc.

The mutualisation of expertises and financial means increases the success of creators and publishers beyond borders. It also makes easier bilateral relations and exchanges between countries on specific concrete projects.
