how to start steps towards success
How to Start – Steps towards Success
  • Identification of the appropriate programme for your project idea: many programmes are relevant to the arts and cultural sector but the focus is often different!
  • Most programmes are “transnational”: You need a minimum of three or four partner organisations

EU_Funding www.interart.at

steps towards success
Steps towards Success
  • It is an advantage if you know your partners in advance and have worked already together!
  • Well developed partnerships are a key factor for successful applications and projects
  • Identify similar projects
  • Identify sources of co-financing your project

EU_Funding www.interart.at

steps towards success1
Steps towards Success
  • Monitor calls for proposals
  • Carefully read the application form and supporting documentation (every programme will differ more or less from another!)
  • Prepare application in consultation with partners
  • Inform your local contact point about your application

EU_Funding www.interart.at

why european partners
Why European Partners
  • Apart from formal requirements European partners give your project an European dimension
  • Choose partners from different European regions
  • What is the specific role of each partner? Do they bring new and different strengths to a project?

EU_Funding www.interart.at

european dimension
European Dimension
  • What is your project's approach to Europe?
  • Do you understand the goals of the European Union?
  • Does the project go beyond national interests?
  • Transfer of know-how Europe-wide?

EU_Funding www.interart.at

partners
Partners
  • Compatibility (similar values & goals)
  • Communications (E-mail, quick responses)
  • Experience in carrying out EU-funded projects is an asset
  • Stability

EU_Funding www.interart.at

how to search partners
How to search partners
  • Start early (even if you are not currently thinking about a specific project)
  • Contact potential partners via E-mail
  • Use Google to identify them
  • Use specific data-bases e.g. for Culture 2000 http://agora.mcu.es/pcc/index.htm
  • Join international meetings organised by national contact points

EU_Funding www.interart.at

other points to consider
Other points to consider
  • Project must not be started before official project lifetime
  • How much money can your organisation invest? EU-funding covers almost never 100%. Usually 30-75%
  • Co-financing: national/regional funds, foundations, sponsoring…

EU_Funding www.interart.at

other points to consider1
Other points to consider
  • Duration of application procedures – project starts sometimes more than one year after submission of application.
  • Is your project/idea innovative? (partnership, sustainability, methodology, ICT, type of co-operation)
  • Dissemination: Make project results accessible, many European citizens should have an advantage of your project
