Finding partners

Creative Europe supports cross-border exchange and co-operation. You will need to find European partners if you wish to apply for Co-operation Projects, European Networks, European Platforms under the Culture strand; and for European Co-development Funding under the MEDIA strand.

If you are looking for a Creative Europe project partner get in touch with one of our Offices. We can direct you to current partner search resources via our Creative Europe Desk Network.

One of the objectives of the Creative Europe Programme is to reinforce and promote cross-border co-operation on a European level in the Cultural and Creative sectors.

The best partnerships come from personal contacts already made through your organisation's activities. However there are some other avenues to develop European partnerships.

The Culture Office receives a number of partner search requests each year from our Desk colleagues across Europe on behalf of European cultural organisations looking for partners.

Contact the Culture office
with any questions you might have and we will advise you on the next steps to take.

Attending Markets, pitching forums, going to networking events and taking part in training programmes across Europe is undoubtedly the best way to meet potential partners and form successful partnerships.

We can advise you on the most suitable market or event for you and your project or help put you in touch with potential partners from other European countries.
