Deadline: 23 November 2016
The European Commission is seeking proposals to support European cooperation working mainly on transnational mobility, audience development (accessible and inclusive culture) and capacity building (notably digitisation, new business models and education and training).
- Transnational mobility
- capacity building for cultural operators involved in the project to work transnationally and internationally
- creation, production
- improving professional skills, peer learning, education/training
- career opportunities for artists and professionals to work transnationally and internationally
- accessing new markets
- creating network possibilities, building partnerships and contacts
- reaching new and wider audiences
- triggering intercultural and interfaith dialogue, respect for diverse cultures and cultural expressions, and facilitating the integration of refugees
- Audience development
- projects focusing on creating audience development skills for cultural operators/artists as one of their main goals
- projects involving co-creations, co-productions, touring, etc. having a clear strategy for audience development to accompany the project, so that they do not focus solely on the “supply side” but also on the “demand side”, ensuring that the activities have the largest possible impact
- requiring that projects involving residences or exchange schemes for artists seek to interact with local communities and audiences, rather than confining their mobility experience to their immediate peers
- Capacity building
- New business models
- Training and education
- Category 1 – Smaller scale cooperation projects: Projects involving a project leader and at least two other partners having their legal seat in at least three different countries taking part in the Culture Sub-programme, with a maximum EU funding of EUR 200 000.
- Category 2 – Larger scale cooperation projects: Projects involving a project leader and at least five other partners having their legal seat in at least six different countries taking part in the Culture Sub-programme, with a maximum EU funding of EUR 2 000 000.

This budget is subject to the availability of the funds after the adoption of the budget for 2017 by the budgetary authority.
- The applicants (the project leader and the partners) must be active in the cultural and creative sectors as defined in Article 2 of Regulation No 1295/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing the Creative Europe Programme.
