The eligible third country for 2011 was the United States of Mexico. Each year the Special Action for Third Countries enables one or more countries to be the subject of a call for proposals. The call enables grants to be given for cooperation projects, which correspond to the objectives of the Culture Programme.
To be eligible, projects must have a duration of not more than 24 months;
- involve a minimum of three co-organisers drawn from three different countries taking part in the Programme;
- involve cultural cooperation with at least one partner from the selected Third Country (at least 50% of the project output should come from that country) and be the subject of an application requesting a grant of no less than EUR 50 000 and no more than EUR 200 000.
