Call for proposals CULTURE Sub-programme 2020 - Bridging culture and audiovisual content through digital EACEA-28-2019 Closed!


Within the specific objective to foster policy development, innovation, creativity, audience development and new business and management models through support for trans-national policy cooperation, the cross-sectoral strand of the Creative Europe Programme provides support to testing of new and cross-sectoral business approaches to funding, distributing and monetising creation.

In its proposal for Creative Europe post-2020 the Commission proposed establishing a Creative Innovation Lab for cross-sectoral collaboration and innovation. In this light, and drawing on the results of a recent workshop with stakeholders, pilot projects will be supported in 2020 which explore the potential for cross-sectoral collaboration in view of the Creative Innovation Lab, by supporting activities at the cross roads between different cultural and creative sectors, including audiovisual, and through the use of innovative technologies.


Support will be given to projects:

  1. featuring new forms of creation at the cross roads between different cultural and creative sectors, including the audiovisual, and through the use of innovative technologies, including virtual reality,
  2. fostering innovative cross-sectoral approaches and tools to facilitate access, distribution, promotion and/or monetisation of culture and creativity, including cultural heritage.
