Call for applications: expert group on crowdfunding

Crowdfunding is an important tool to foster cultural diversity and a viable source of finance for the cultural organisations and creative SMEs. The Commission has launched a call with a view to selecting members of an Informal Expert Group on crowdfunding. Deadline 16 May.


The March 2014 communication "unleashing the potential of crowdfunding in the European Union" announced that the Commission "will set up the European Crowdfunding Stakeholder Forum as an expert group of high level representatives of associations of concerned stakeholder groups and national authorities".

The members of the group should include associations or interest groups representing entrepreneurs or SME's, social entrepreneurs, non-profits or foundations, sectors of the economy  or other individuals or organisations that use or are likely to use crowdfunding significantly in the future. This target group includes operators in the cultural and creative sectors.

The call is open until 16 May 2014.
