European Networks


Creative Europe offers financial support to European networks operating in the cultural sector. Funding is available to networks of national cultural organisations who want to work together on issues of shared interest. This funding primarily helps this sector to adapt to change, and specifically indends to enhance the capacities of European cultural and creative sectors to face common challenges, nurture talents, innovate, prosper and generate jobs and growth, as well as, to strengthen their  ability to operate transnationally.

Networks must have a shared mission, governance rules, and members’ rights and obligations, as formally specified (in “statutes” or equivalent) and agreed upon by its members. Networks should be composed of a coordinating entity and its members

  • increase cultural access to and participation in culture as well as audience engagement and development.
  • build the capacity to be active at international level in Europe and beyond
  • contribute to the European Green Deal.
  • help the European cultural and creative sectors to fully take advantage of new technologies to enhance their competiveness.

 Expected impact

European networks exclusively covering the audio-visual sector are not eligible for funding under this action
