Among European cooperation projects alone, the UK success rate of 46% is almost double the overall average success rate of 24% and second only to Germany of the larger European countries. In total, 46 UK organisations will receive support from the Culture programme, with 12 acting as lead organisations and 34 as partner organisations. It is estimated that this strand of funding will bring EUR 1.5 million to the UK cultural sector.
"The European Union is about more than just the Single Market" said Jacqueline Minor, Head of the European Commission Representation in the UK. "Our cultural ties are deep. Through our co-operation in artistic and creative ways, we see how much we have in common, and, of course, we can celebrate our differences. It's great to see that the UK's vibrant and successful creative industries are benefitting from working with their EU counterparts."
More details about the programme and a full list of projects selected are available on the UK Cultural Contact Point website.
