Proposals Invited for Creative Europe ‘Bridging Culture and Audiovisual Content Through Digital’ Call
Creative Europe is the framework programme for the cultural and creative sectors for 2014-2020. It brings together the 2007-2013 programmes (Culture 2007, MEDIA and MEDIA Mundus) into a single comprehensive framework programme.
A new Call has been launched as part of this programme to support project(s) at the crossroads between different cultural and creative sectors (including audiovisual), such as through the use of innovative technologies, including virtual reality. The Call will also foster innovative cross-sectoral approaches and tools to facilitate access, distribution, promotion and monetisation of culture and creativity, including cultural heritage.
The focus should be on the following aspects:
• Problem solving approach and addressing challenges for the cultural and creative sectors.
• Audiences and the user experience are of paramount importance in scoping the problem.
• Technology is an enabler in addressing key problems, rather than an objective on its own.
• Support innovation as regards the creation, distribution and promotion of creative content, addressing cross-sectoral collaboration as well as the use of enabling technologies is also an objective.
Proposals must be submitted by a consortium composed of at least three legal entities coming from three different countries participating in the Creative Europe Programme and representing a diverse range of expertise across several cultural and creative sectors, including audiovisual.
Proposals may be submitted by non-profit organisations (private or public); public authorities (national, regional, local); international organisations; universities; educational institutions; research centres; and profit making entities. Natural persons are not eligible except self-employed persons or equivalent (ie sole traders) where the company does not possess legal personality separate from that of the natural person.
If the United Kingdom withdraws from the EU during the grant period without concluding an agreement with the EU ensuring in particular that British applicants continue to be eligible, UK applicants will cease to receive EU funding (while continuing, where possible, to participate) or be required to leave the project.
The total budget available for the Call is estimated at €1,715,000. The minimum amount awarded to a single project will be €300,000, up to a maximum of 60% of the total eligible costs of the project. The period of eligibility of costs will start on 1 January 2021 and end on 30 June 2022.
Applications should be submitted via the Funding and Tenders Portal website by the 14 May 2020 deadline.
