Other funding opportunities for your cultural projects

The EU has a specific programme dedicated to funding cultural activities in Europe, the Culture Programme, however, there are many other opportunities for funding for operators with a cultural project involving other sectors.

Did you know, for instance, that the Lifelong Learning Programme finances cultural projects with strong links to education and training and competence building? Or that cultural and creative industries may receive support under the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP)?

In order to make it easier for you to find your way around the wide variety of EU funding opportunities, we have made a concise overview of relevant programmes that we invite you to consult for more information. We have also included examples of funded projects with strong links to culture that will give you an immediate understanding of what types of activities are eligible.
