What does this funding support?

Creative industries are experiencing a significant skills gap at the crossing of creativity and technology. This call, funded through Creative Europe, hopes to endorse an interdisciplinary approach in Masters and university courses by nurturing cross-sectorial curricula that combine technology with art. 

The call will support higher education institutions in the design and implementation of pioneering modules to be included in existing arts, culture, science, engineering, technology and/or other relevant masters. The modules should combine arts and ICT with entrepreneurial skills and business exposure. The modules are expected to bring positive and long-lasting effects in the development of cross-sectorial approaches bringing arts, audiovisual, entrepreneurship and ICT together and thus foster the innovation capacity of the higher education institutions.

The following overview is intended for guidance only. Full guidelines can be found on the European Commission website.

How much is available?

The total budget earmarked for the co-financing is estimated at €1.5 million.
