New MEDIA Funding Calls Now Open!
A new round of MEDIA funding calls are now open! New calls include TV & Online Content, European Slate Development, Video Games & Immersive Content, and more.
See below for the list of new MEDIA open calls and deadlines. You can find details of the open funding calls under our MEDIA Funding Opportunities section.
In 2024, some MEDIA grants have been adapted to meet the changing needs in the sector.
- Content Cluster: Companies will be allowed to apply to more than one development call per year, so that these would have a broader portfolio to choose from for their funding opportunities. The European Commission want to incentivise applications from bigger projects by changing the eligibility criteria for support to video games and immersive content.
- Audience Cluster: The Commission also adapted the eligibility criteria for the European VOD networks and operators grant to encourage applications from smaller, independent VOD services. This, in the context of intense competition with global players and broadcasters.
- Business Cluster: The Markets & Networking scheme will respond to the increased need for industry networking and cooperation at events brought about by a shift to increased acquisitions online.
- Policy Cluster: The European Commission will fund the second edition of the European Media Outlook report to continue monitoring the key trends driving change in EU media markets. It will also develop the MediaInvest equity investment platform; contribute to greening of the audiovisual sector through relevant support schemes; support media literacy actions; and facilitate cooperation within the European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services (ERGA).
