Are you looking for opportunities to meet European partner organisations for potential collaboration?
Cooperation Projects 2019 – the call for proposals is now open; deadline for submission of applications is Tuesday 11th December 2018

Are you currently developing a proposal for Creative Europe Co-operation projects?  The call for applications has been published and the new guidelines and other documents can be downloaded here.

In addition to the existing priorities the new call features two additional priorities:

  • 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.


Another key change is that the budget form has been totally revised with project costs now presented per category of cost rather than per partner organisation.  So, if you have been working from the previous budget sheet make sure to download the new budget sheet as soon as possible.  Please note that the earliest that project activities supported under this call can start is September 2019.
