On 29 November 2021, the European Commission published a new guide that maps EU funding opportunities for the cultural and creative sectors.
CulturEU gathers 75 funding opportunities from 21 funding programmes, from Creative Europe and Horizon Europe to structural funds and InvestEU. Besides, CulturEU features inspiring examples of projects that have already benefited from EU funding opportunities.
Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel, said: “It was high time to accompany cultural actors in their search for European funds and to gather in one single guide all the funding opportunities the EU offer them. This unprecedented mapping allows all cultural actors to find the best European funding for them among 75 opportunities in just three clicks.”
The guide was developed to help all types and sizes of partners working in the cultural and creative sectors to navigate the EU funding landscape, to understand which opportunities are available to them, and ultimately help them to access EU funding more easily. CulturEU will be regularly updated and will be available in all EU languages in early 2022.
