The Creative Europe MEDIA sub-programme supports a range of training activities in management, new technologies and scriptwriting. These courses allow audiovisual professionals from member states of the MEDIA Programme to increase their competence and their competitiveness on the international market. All activities are conducted at industry level ranging from short-term (2-3 days) to long-term (up to 12 months), and take place across the whole of Europe.
Training fees vary from one training course to another. Bursaries can often be provided by the training organisations or by local/regional/national authorities such as Screen Training Ireland. Some courses can provide grants. Check eligibility rules with the training organisation.
The general rule is that participants must come from one of the 33 countries participating in the Creative Europe MEDIA sub-programme i.e. the 28 EU Member States, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
