Support to European platforms
This strand of funding is for the support of European platforms to showcase emerging talent and stimulate Europe-wide programming of cultural and artistic activities.
Coordinating entities that have a minimum of 10 member organisations in at least 10 different participating countries are eligible to apply. Applicants can request up to €500,000 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 specific objectives of the Support to European platforms strand are to co-finance activities aimed at:
- fostering the development of emerging talent and stimulating the transnational mobility of cultural and creative players and circulation of works;
- increasing recognition and visibility of artists and creators with a strong commitment in terms of European programming through communications activities and branding strategy, including, where appropriate, the creation of a European quality label.
