Call for Proposals 2018 - Music Moves Europe - Online and Offline Distribution EAC/S19/2018 Closed!


The general objective of this call is to support European music diversity by identifying and supporting existing innovative methods promoting the online and offline distribution models, as well as newly generated ideas, through the selection of 10 grant proposals that enhance the cross-border circulation of music repertoire in order to overcome the existing barriers imposed by the international hits or other obstacles such as visibility, language and market fragmentation in the music sector.

  • European music curators and/or European music algorithms;
  • Recommendations with advanced use of technology, big data, artificial intelligence, human curation, or the combination thereof;
  • Compilation and promotion of playlists of European musical diversity;
  • Dedicated discovery tools to help find diverse European music and testing of innovative technologies likely to increase the online discoverability of European music (artificial intelligence, big data, augmented reality, life soundtracks, etc.);
  • Services increasing visibility of indie or local repertoire on international platforms;
  • Measures ensuring that talents get access to proper distribution channels and can reach out to the market place;
