Theme session 1. Friday 26th of August.
EU-funding for Culture Projects
Lisbeth Tegllund, Cultural Contact Point/EU Culture Program, Danish Arts Agency

The CCP provides information, advice and support on funding for culture and in particular the EU Culture program (2007-2013).The aim is to develop cultural cooperation at a European level and encourage to the emergence of European citizenship.

Lisbeth Tegllund described the different possibilities for funding in regard to EU culture programs.

She recommended that libraries run the project in corporation with a broad range of countries from Europe as it increases the chances of receiving the funding.  As a minimum three countries must cooperate. The highest possible support one project can get is a covering of 50% of the total expenses. It is possible to apply for projects running for up 3-5 years or shorter projects on ½ year to 2 year.

Examples of projects in the library sector that have received funds are the projects “E-books on demand” and “European Network on Archival Cooperation”.
It can be difficult to find good partners, which is why networking is important.

Networks for libraries and archives:
The European library:
International Council of Archives:
The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions:

One can find inspiration to the application by looking at former projects at the EVE database:

It is possible to call the national Culture Contact Point to get advices about how to apply and how to write a good proposal.
