European Networks
Description of call
"European Networks"

Networks play an important role in bringing together fragmented national actors across Europe. Furthermore, they are important multipliers vis-à-vis their sectors and can help accelerate their adjustment to the challenges identified through knowledge sharing and awareness raising activities, thereby contributing to a supportive environment for cultural operators.
To support the activities of those networks whose activities are in line with the objectives and priorities of the Creative Europe Culture Sub-programme, the network scheme will be implemented through framework partnership agreements 2 to be signed in 2014 and in 2017 of respectively 3 years and 4 years. The maximum grant per specific agreement awarded under the framework partnership agreement will be 250,000 € per year.
Purely illustrative examples of the activities that can be supported within projects, if they contribute to the above objectives and priorities, include the following (please note this list is not exhaustive):

  • The organisation of meetings, conferences, workshops and/or the development of tools, including digital tools to foster information exchange, exchange of practice and informal peer learning which are important to strengthen the capacity of the sectors, in particular internationalising and professionalising them.
  • Facilitating multilateral exchanges, professional networking and partnership and project development. Exchanges may be among professionals, or multi-layered, for example with artists, policy-makers, etc.
  • The analysis and comparison of policies, programmes and impediments to the development of culture at European, national, regional and local levels. The dissemination of accessible and re-usable knowledge to cultural operators, decision-makers, investors and public opinion.
  • The collection of quantitative and qualitative data on sector developments and the development of methodologies for collecting comparable data and their interpretation by these networks where possible. This will help to address the current lack of comparable quantitative and qualitative data on various sectors.
  • The preparation of newsletters and the maintenance of professional databases to assist cultural professionals, artists or audiences.

The scheme shall support, in particular, not-for-profit projects.
