The Commission is launching a €500 000 call to design a technical solution which will aim to increase the exposure of European films in video on demand (VOD) services available in the EU.

The Commission Communication of 9 December 2015, Towards a modern, more European copyright framework, has introduced the necessity for a more efficient funding for, and use of, subtitling and dubbing by public funds, which is the basis for the present preparatory action.

In line with the communication of the Commission, this action complements the development of a European aggregator of online search tools destined to end users (online indexation of available legal offers), which was the subject of the first year of preparatory action back in 2015.

Applications are open until 26th September for 1-2 projects to run in 2017.
