Creative Europe: European Cooperation Projects – Call 2018
New calls for proposals under the Creative Europe Programme are expected to be published in late September 2017:
The first will be dedicated to small- and large-scale European cooperation projects in the "standard" version (small scale cooperation projects, large scale cooperation projects). The second will be specifically designed for new projects related to the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage.
The newly introduced category of projects will specifically target two objectives of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage (Council and EP Decision no 864/2017 Art 1.2):
sharing and appreciation of Europe's cultural heritage as a shared resource, to raise awareness of common history and values,
to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.
In particular, the third category of cooperation projects should aim to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space and promote cultural heritage as a source of inspiration for contemporary creation and innovation and strengthen the interaction between the cultural heritage sector and other cultural and creative sectors.
Within the context of this action, cultural heritage should be understood as encompassing a broad spectrum of resources inherited from the past in all forms and aspects -tangible, intangible and digital (created digital and digitized), including monuments, sites, landscapes, skills, practices, knowledge and expressions of human creativity, as well as collections conserved and managed by public and private bodies such as museums, libraries and archives. Cultural heritage also includes film heritage. Please note, however, that projects supporting physical interventions on monuments, sites or landscapes are not co-financed within the scope of the present Calls.
Projects are encouraged to implement highly visible activities in their first year to mark the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage. In assessing applications under this category, the Commission will favor projects that do not only focus on awareness raising/communication activities, but which will have an enduring effect and are designed to be sustainable beyond the life of the project.
