The European Commission received 130 proposals for calls of the Music Moves Europe action. The beneficiaries will have one year to implement their projects.

The European Commission received a total number of 130 proposals for the training and the distribution calls of the Music Moves Europe action. Applicants submitted 79 and 51 proposals for the calls respectively. From these, the European Commission will finance 10-10 proposals based on the decision taken during the first week of February 2019.

The beneficiaries will have one year to implement their projects. After that, the Commission will assess their results and use the lessons learnt from these pilots to develop sector-specific support in the future Creative Europe programme.

What are these pilot projects?

The Training Scheme for Young Music Professionals aimed at identifying and supporting pilot training programmes for young professionals to test innovative models on how to improve the sector’s capacity and resilience.

The second call aimed at supporting European music diversity by identifying online and offline music distribution models that have the potential to increase the availability of European repertoire beyond mainstream hits.

What is the Music Moves Europe action?

Music Moves Europe (MME) is the overarching framework for the European Commission's initiatives and actions in support of the European music sector. Supported by the 2018 Preparatory Action, the Commission published two calls for proposals.
