Call for Proposals 2017 - Action on subtitling including crowdsourcing to increase the circulation of European works CNECT 2017/3135124 Closed!


The objective of this action is to increase the availability, the exploitation and the circulation of European works. Specifically, the aim of this action is twofold:

  2. Enable tracking of language versions and enable service providers (e.g. VOD services, catch-up TV services or cinemas) to easily find the language version of their choice.


Eigible activities are those consisting in assembling and delivering digital packages of European works with subtitling obtained through this innovative process and eventually sharing the results of the experimentation with professionals and policy makers.

  • costs of subtitling;
  • evaluation and research cost;
  • promotional cost;
