Call for proposals 2014 - Culture Sub-programme – European networks EAC/S18/2013 Closed!


This measure offers action grants to European networks active in the field of the cultural and creative sectors. These are structured groups of organisations representing the cultural and creative sectors, whose objective is to strengthen the capacity of the cultural and creative sectors to operate trans-nationally and internationally and to adapt to change with a view to achieving the general objectives of fostering and promoting cultural and linguistic diversity as well as strengthening the competitiveness of these sectors, also through the promotion of innovation.
The support for European networks is intended to have a structuring effect on players in the cultural and creative sectors and therefore a limited number of networks with broad coverage will be supported across a balanced range of sectors. Greater synergies between existing networks in order to reinforce their organisational and financial structure and avoid duplication of efforts would be welcomed, where feasible.


The priorities of the Programme, relating to the reinforcement of the sector's capacity to operate transnationally and around which applicants are specifically asked to base their application, are the following:
  • Supporting actions providing cultural and creative players with skills, competences and know-how that contribute to strengthening the cultural and creative sectors, including encouraging adaptation to digital technologies, testing innovative approaches to audience development and testing of new business and management models;
  • Supporting actions enabling cultural and creative players to cooperate internationally and to internationalise their careers and activities in the Union and beyond, when possible on the basis of long-term strategies;
  • Providing support to strengthen European cultural and creative organisations and international networking in order to facilitate access to professional opportunities.
