Creative Europe's European Networks strand helps cultural and creative sectors to operate transnationally and to strengthen their competiveness. Networks play an important role in bringing together fragmented national players across Europe.
European Networks funding runs over four years from 2017 – 2020 with 28 European Networks supported by Creative Europe Culture. In this latest round of results, 38 Irish organisations are involved in 17 of the selected networks.
