Cooperation Projects 2019 Funding Call Opens

The 2019 funding call for Creative Europe’s Cooperation Projects has been announced with a deadline of 11 December 2018, before 11am (GMT). Projects must begin between 1 September 2019 and 15 December 2019, and can last up to 48 months.

The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive (EACEA), which manages Creative Europe’s funding opportunities, has published the new timetable, alongside new guidelines and eForms. They can be accessed here.

Creative Europe Desk UK has summarised some of the basic information about the call on this Cooperation Projects funding opportunity page.

What’s new? 

As usual, both small and large Cooperation Projects need to address at least one of the priorities. Two new priorities have been added for this year’s call in addition to the existing selection:

  • Enhance intercultural dialogue, promote shared EU values and mutual understanding and respect for other cultures, thereby contributing to the social integration of migrants and refugees;
  • As a legacy to the European Year of Culture Heritage, raise awareness of common history and values, and reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.

If you’ve applied before, you will notice that there are small changes to the e-form and significant changes to the budget questions this year, so do take the time to familiarise yourself with them.

What about Brexit? 

The guidelines feature an updated clause for ‘British applicants’. Take a look at our advice article on Brexit and Cooperation Projects for more information.
