Music moves Europe Preparatory Action: all four calls published
The publication of two calls for proposals and two calls for tenders under the Music Moves Europe Preparatory Action represents an important milestone in testing suitable actions for more targeted EU funding for music post-2020.
In 2015, the European Commission started a dialogue with representatives from the music sector in Europe with the aim to identify key challenges and possible ways to tackle them, including EU support. “Music Moves Europe” has since then become the framework for these discussions and more broadly for EU initiatives and actions to promote the diversity and competitiveness of Europe’s music sector.
For 2018, the European Parliament secured a budget of 1.5m EUR for a Preparatory Action “Music Moves Europe: Boosting European music diversity and talent” with the aim to test suitable actions for more targeted EU funding for music post-2020. The implementation of this Preparatory Action is an opportunity to test new ideas on how to complement the existing forms of EU support for music under the Creative Europe programme.
