Call for proposals 2021 - Support for awareness raising activities about the value of Intellectual Property and the damage caused by counterfeiting and piracy GR/002/21 Closed!


This call for proposals aims to raise awareness about the benefits of protecting intellectual property rights (IPR) and about the damage caused by the infringement of these rights by highlighting to young Europeans the importance of IP in supporting creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. It intends to increase knowledge and to engage priority audiences to foster respect for IP rights, with a view to ultimately changing people’s behaviour by reducing their purchases of counterfeit goods and their access to digital content from illegal sources.
The call’s specific objectives are to:

  • increase knowledge of the value of IP as a tool to protect creativity and innovation by providing concrete and objective information about IP in this context and increasing awareness of the damage caused by IPR infringement;
  • engage priority audiences regarding these issues, taking into account relevant leverage possibilities and especially how audiences expect to be addressed on these matters (non-patronising, objective and neutral) with a view to changing behaviour, reducing the appeal of counterfeiting and piracy.


The types of eligible activity financed under this call for proposals includes the following, non-exhaustive examples:

  • media and social media activities;
  • production and dissemination of audiovisual materials or publications;
  • organisation of events, fairs, exhibitions or training activities that are part of the specific project;
