New call for proposals: Pilot project - Makers' Mobility

A new call under the Culture sub-programme has been announced which will award funding to organisations that facilitate mobility and exchange between innovators and creatives working across different cultural hubs and spaces.

The grant agreement resulting from this call for proposals will be allocated to one single project, with a maximum amount of €350,000 available. 

This call is in addition to the recently launched i-Portunus initiative, which is intended to support short-term mobility for artists and creative professionals in order to improve collaboration opportunities. 

The overall aim of the Maker's Mobility pilot project is to define and test policies and actions that support the mobility and exchange of experience between the cultural and creative industries, creative hubs, maker-spaces, fab-labs; formal and non-formal learning, and skills development systems in a cross-sectoral way. The pilot project is intended as a first step towards developing a European Framework aimed at boosting the mobility of makers, as well as exchange of good practices. 

An example of what is meant by a 'creative hub' can be found on the British Council website

The application process requires that candidates demonstrate how their proposed project would engage with a range of EU countries, in line with the European Commission's intent to promote cross-border collaboration.
