With this budget i-Portunus expects to fund 250 applications, approximately. i-Portunus reserves the right not to distribute all the funds available.   Eligibility & Programme Detail The i-Portunus for Architecture call for applications is open to architects and cultural professionals active in the field of architecture (individuals and groups up to 5 people), aged 18+, of all educational qualifications and levels of experience, legally residing in a  Creative Europe country. i-Portunus provides financial support to partially fund the cost of travel (transport, accommodation etc.) to another (or several) Creative Europe country(ies) and this particular call will fund one of the following three activities:

The duration of the mobility must be between 7 and 60 days and must take place before 30 November 2021. The travel can be continuous or segmented:
  • A continuous mobility means that you have one round-trip travel or one multi-destination trip.
  • A segmented mobility means that you will travel several times to one or several destinations. Each trip must last a minimum of five days, and the total number of days still has to be between 7 and 60 days.
The conditions of funding are the following:
  • A fixed amount of 350,00 EUR for transport.
  • Per diems determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the duration of the mobility, and payable for each overnight stay between date of departure and date of return, with the amount depending on the destination country up to maximum 2650,00 EUR/person.

  • If group members plan to have different durations of the mobility, or travel to different destinations, then the group is not eligible and it is better to apply individually.
  • A member of your group cannot act as a host organisation.
  • If any member of your group has previously received i-Portunus mobility support, your application will be rejected.
