Pan-European Cultural Entities
This new action of the Creative Europe programme supports cultural entities, such as orchestras, that have a large geographical reach and offer training, professionalisation and performance opportunities for young, highly talented artists.
The aim of this funding strand is to offer training, professionalisation and performance opportunities for young talented artists. Targeted cultural entities should adopt an inclusive approach in the recruitment and training of young artists. Artists should be nationals or residents from at least 20 countries participating in the Creative Europe Programme and should reflect the genre and European cultural diversity. As ambassador of the EU’s cultural values and artistic excellence, these entities should offer frequent possibilities to perform and reach young audiences by using appropriate means including live performances or digital tools.
Applicants (coordinating entities) must be legal entities established and officially registered in an eligible country. Applicants must have had a legal existence for at least 2 years on the date of the deadline for submission of applications.
The maximum grant awarded per project is €1.8 million in total over the 3 year duration of the project. The grant cannot exceed 40% of total eligible costs.
Applications for all Creative Europe calls will be processed through the European Commission's Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal.
