Content of program
Pilot projects and preparatory actions (PPPAs) are new initiatives that might turn into EU funding programmes. Pilot projects are designed to test the feasibility of an action, and last not more than 2 years. Preparatory actions last for up to 3 years, and are often the successor of a successful pilot project. They are designed to prepare new EU policies, legislation, programmes etc.
EACEA manages PPPAs in the areas of sport, culture and media.
Actions will focus on encouraging community integration of children and youth. By improving their mental well-being by attending sport sessions, these individuals will eventually become ready to adjust to their new environment. Sport activities, with their power of bringing people together, will help interaction with the host community; facilitate integration into the education system and the labour market.
Additionally, actions may focus on examples of inspirational behaviour and practices at grassroots level that can be multiplied and on methods to engage citizens and sport stakeholders in communities to co-create and cooperate on sustainable sport practices
Other actions work on pooling voices, forces and resources – both public and private - for the benefit of a holistic and integrated approach to cultural heritage policies at all levels, notably at the EU level, and ensure that all relevant EU and national policies and priorities duly incorporate a cultural heritage dimension, as explained in the abovementioned Annual Work Programme for 2022. In pursuing this objective, the Hub will build on and pool the resources of the data space for cultural heritage, based in Europeana and in the 15-years work of over 4000 museums, libraries and archives across Europe, including Ukraine and the Balkans as well as the upcoming Competence Centre for the conservation of cultural heritage (which is also leading an initiative called SUM (Save the Ukraine Monuments).
