Support to European networks

This strand of funding is for the support of European networks with the aim of encouraging activities which facilitate professional development of those working within the culture sector through networking, peer learning, exchanges etc. It is intended to achieve a structuring effect on the sector and therefore a limited number of networks with broad reach and balanced across sub-sectors will be supported.

Coordinating entities that have a minimum of 15 member organisations in at least 10 eligible countries can apply. Applicants can apply for up to EUR 250,000 per year which should represent a maximum of 80% of the eligible costs. 20% of the eligible costs must be found from other sources.

The main objectives of the Support to European networks strand are to co-finance activities aimed at:

  • strengthening the capacity of the cultural and creative sectors to operate transnationally and to adapt to change;
  • fostering and promoting cultural and linguistic diversity and strengthening the sectors' competitiveness, also through the promotion of innovation.
