Wondering what types of collaborations happen between European cultural organisations?

Or are you wondering how you can connect with potential partners for a European project?  There are a number of sources you can use to access information on the current and/or completed projects (and their partners) that have been successful in accessing funding under Creative Europe programme and its predecessors.

The Creative Europe Project Results Platform is a searchable database containing project descriptions, lists of project partners and budget information.  It also features a ‘success stories’ section with best practice projects and is a useful source of information for keeping up to date on what others are doing across Europe.

The UK Creative Europe Desk also has a database of projects involving UK partners.

Find case studies of projects that have involved Irish partners here and you can also download a pdf of our publication Across Borders Across the Board featuring projects funded under the EU Culture Programme 2007-2013 with Irish partners.

As well as providing inspiration for project ideas these resources can be a useful tool for sourcing European partners.  You can also consult the existing partner search databases and use the many European arts and culture sector networks to connect with potential collaborators.
