INTRODUCTION Creative Europe is the European Union’s programme to support the cultural, creative and audiovisual sectors. From 2014-2020, €1.46 billion is available to support European projects across 40+ countries with the potential to travel, reach new audiences and encourage skill-sharing and development. Creative Europe’s Culture sub-programme supports creative, cultural and heritage organisations through four funding opportunities: • Cooperation Projects European collaborative projects • European Networks Professional exchange • European Platforms Distribution of new works • Literary Translation Translation of European works Creative Europe runs prizes such as the European Union Prize for Literature and the European Capitals of Culture. One-off cross-sector calls have included Refugee Integration Projects and the European Creative Hubs Network. It also has a MEDIA sub-programme, investing in film, television, new media and video games.


IMPACT: BEYOND FUNDING The impacts of Creative Europe are so much more than the funding it provides. Creative Europe supports the UK to build connections across Europe and beyond. This map shows the number of projects with UK involvement that have leads and partners in other participating countries.

COOPERATION PROJECTS Cooperation Projects is the Culture sub-programme’s main funding opportunity and around 70% of the budget is allocated to these projects. WHAT DOES THIS FUNDING SUPPORT?


Transnational collaborative projects across any art form for up to four years.

• EU member states • EEA countries: Iceland, Norway • Other countries, such as: Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, Republic of Serbia, Tunisia and Ukraine • Organisations and individuals from non-eligible countries can still participate as associate partners and benefit from up to 30% of the project budget once the eligibility threshold is met.

They aim to create an impact that is more than the sum of the individual initiatives, and applications need to show the added value of collaborative working. WHO IS THIS FUNDING FOR? Creative, cultural and heritage organisations working across any art form. This includes higher education institutions, local authorities, social enterprises, charities and companies operating in the cultural and creative sectors. Projects can be inter-disciplinary. The project leader and the partners must be active in the cultural and creative sectors and be legally established in one of the participating countries. Individuals may not apply. THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF COOPERATION PROJECTS Small Cooperation Projects • Minimum of 3 partner organisations from 3 different eligible countries • Apply for a grant of up to €200,000 • Apply for up to 60% of the total project budget Large Cooperation Projects • Minimum of 6 partners from 6 different eligible countries • Apply for a grant of up to €2 million • Apply for up to 50% of the total project budget The partnership decides how much is allocated to each organisation. Match funding is required and the partners decide how much each organisation agrees to contribute.


Eligible countries can change so check our website: HOW OFTEN ARE THE DEADLINES? The annual deadline for Cooperation Projects is towards the end of the year. Application forms and guidelines are published online several months before the deadline. Sign up to our newsletter for updates. HOW DO I CREATE A STRONG PARTNERSHIP? Time and investment are needed so that you can jointly develop a project and application. Partnerships can come about organically: you might already be working with international peers and organisations or have been referred by colleagues. You can also find partners by: • attending networking events, festivals and conferences with an international or European theme • joining a European cultural network: • looking through our database of funded projects to see which organisations have worked with Creative Europe before • using online platforms such as partner search databases and LinkedIn.

Small Cooperation Project led by Creative Carbon Scotland The partnership brings together four cultural partners from Ireland, Belgium, Sweden and Scotland, each paired with a local Adaptation Partner Received Creative Europe support of €199,999 in 2018.

Over two years, Cultural Adaptations focuses on culture’s role in adaptation to climate change. As part of the project, it: • Develops a methodology from each pairing of Cultural and Adaptation Partners for managers of local cultural SMEs to enable them to develop and implement climate change adaptation strategies • Tests how artists can help provide new ways of thinking and different approaches to the challenges of adapting to climate change, with each pairing embedding an artist within an adaptation project • Will result in an international conference in Scotland to share the learnings of the project, and a Toolkit and supporting Digital Resource.

Small Cooperation Project led by Ffotogallery Wales The partnership brings together four cultural partners from France, Ireland, Lithuania and Wales Received Creative Europe support of €198,000 in 2018.

Over the course of two years, A Woman’s Work stimulates inter-cultural discussion exploring how women are shaping the future landscape of work in Europe. The project: • Uses photography and digital media to support artistic collaboration, and the co-production of exhibitions, publications and online resources that challenge the dominant view of gender and industry in Europe • Creates new opportunities for artistic exchange, offering new perspectives and dialogue on cultural difference and commonality in Europe, deepening audience engagement and offering new insights into contemporary European experience and identity • Establishes a digital platform as a legacy and resource that will continue to grow and support further transnational co-operation beyond the life of the project.
