Call for proposals 2017 - Modules for Master Degrees in Arts and Science Connect/2017/3346110 Closed!


This experimental pilot call is motivated because the Creative Industries are experiencing a significant skills gap at the crossing of creativity and technology. To respond to this gap at European level, it is proposed to promote an interdisciplinary approach in masters and university courses fostering cross-sectorial curricula combining technology with the Arts to produce knowledgeable and creative workforces.

The action will be implemented through the design and implementation of innovative interdisciplinary modules that will be included in existing arts, culture, science, engineering, technology and/or other relevant masters. These modules should be innovative in blending arts and ICT with entrepreneurial skills and business exposure and use creativity techniques in their teaching and learning methods.


The following types of activities are eligible, inter alia, under this call for proposals:

  • Set-up phase: Design of an innovative multidisciplinary module that would fit within existing master courses
  • Implementing phase: Prototyping, deployment, testing, validation and improvement actions including integration in existing master programmes
  • Conferences, seminars, peer learning and training activities
  • Actions aiming at the creation of networks,
  • Exchanges of methodologies and good practices
  • Studies, analyses, mapping projects
