Creative Europe is the EU’s funding programme for providing support to the culture and audiovisual sectors.
This call aims to enhance the capacities of European cultural and creative sectors to face common challenges and nurture talents, innovate, prosper and generate jobs and growth.
This action will support projects implemented by highly representative, multi-country, membership-based networks of European cultural organisations, which cover a wide range of Creative Europe participating countries. Networks must have a shared mission, governance rules, and members' rights and obligations, as formally specified (in "statutes" or equivalent) and agreed upon by its members. Networks should be composed of a coordinating entity and its members.
European networks exclusively covering the audiovisual sector are not eligible for funding under this action.
Proposals should consistently demonstrate the applicants’ potential to be reliable policy networks in their field(s) of operation. For this, proposals should meet the following themes and priorities and be structured around work packages.
Proposals should address the following specific call priorities:
Proposals should include suitable activities for the reinforcement of the capacities of organisations and professionals active in the creative and cultural sectors. These activities have to be specifically designed to tackle the chosen priorities of the call in an effective way. Activities should include an adequate mix of networking, training or advice to professionals, representing the interest of the sectors on these issues and providing policy analysis or policy developments.
These activities should be formulated within a solid strategic framework and be structured in work packages. Each work package should correspond to one of the call priorities to establish a clear link between the project activities of the work package and the relevant call priority.
Activities should take into account the needs of the network members and facilitate members’ participation throughout the entire project. In order to maximise impact, proposals should also create synergies and foster dialogue, cooperation or exchanges through for instance joint activities with other networks.

+ be legal entities (public or private bodies)
