Find out about other EU funding for video games

The Knowledge Transfer Network is hosting a set of briefing events which outline the details of the opportunities available through the European Commission's Horizon 2020 (H2020) programme. Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme, with nearly €80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014 - 2020).

On 24 November in Brighton, Gaming and Gamification: European Funding Opportunities for the Creative and Digital Industries focuses on the ICT 24 Gaming and Gamification funding opportunity from the ICT H2020 Workplan.

On 26 November in Manchester, Funding Innovation In association with Creative England covers opportunities available for creative and digital businesses. 

These events also provide a valuable opportunity to learn about making applications and finding European partners. Participants are able to put forward their UK creative industry priorities, to be included in the European Commission's development of funding policies. 

How does Creative Europe support video games?

In addition, Creative Europe Desk UK is attending a Gameopolis Workshop in Manchester on 1 December to talk about funding opportunities for games available through Creative Europe's MEDIA sub-programme. A new call for Creative Europe's Development: Video Games scheme will be published soon.
