Creative Europe Deadlines and Events

Are you an academic or researcher in the cultural or creative sectors? Are you interested in cooperating with others in Europe? The European Commission supports your sector through the Creative Europe Programme.

Within the Culture sub-programme Creative Europe funds transnational collaboration through:

  • Cooperation Projects for co-productions, international touring and exhibitions, the sharing of artworks across borders, and international exchanges and residencies;
  • European Networks which bring together national cultural organisations who want to work together on issues of shared interest; and
  • European Platforms which support groups of cultural organisations collaborating across borders.

Most of the projects receiving support will have a cross-border dimension.


The current Culture Programme deadline for Cooperation Projects, Networks and Platforms on 5th October 2016 has been postponed.  Calls are normally published at least three months ahead of the deadline. Watch this space for more information on the new deadlines.

Once published documentation about the 2017 Calls should be available here:
