Brouhaha International festival and Opera Circus were successful in their applications to Erasmus+ and the Imperial War Museum received a grant from the Europe for Citizens programme. Brouhaha received €127k, Opera Circus received €38k, and the Imperial War Museum received €97k.
The next deadlines for these programmes are in March 2015, and there are other deadlines throughout 2015 for other programmes. There are millions of euros available from these programmes, and arts & culture organisations all over Europe are gaining support from them for their projects and activities, and UK organisations can also benefit from these sources.
The December round of Euclid webinars will provide both an overview of these various programmes and detailed information on 4 of the individual programmes - including the Horizon 2020 programme (which covers academic and practical research projects). The webinar programme is as follows:
• 8 December: EU Opportunities: An Overview
• 9 December: EU Programmes: About Creative Europe: Culture
• 11 December: EU Programmes: About Erasmus+
• 12 December: EU Programmes: About Horizon 2020
• 15 December: EU Programmes: About Europe for Citizens
There are also two "packages" available.
• 4 PACK: all 4 programme webinars (9/11/12/15 December)
• 5 PACK: overview plus all 4 programme webinars (8/9/11/12/15 December)
And you can participate via your own computer, laptop, tablet or even smartphone, at work or at home, from anywhere in the UK - or beyond! Feedback from Euclid webinars includes:
• “a very useful and brilliantly speedy overview: I really appreciate it being concise, clear, and only lasting one hour”
• “Very intensive but very useful!”
• “I thought the content was excellent ... I thought the speaker was excellent, clear and concise”
• “thank you – I found this webinar very interesting. It was delivered well – at pace but easy to stay with it. Your presentation style is easy to listen to, and I appreciate the odd injection of humour!”
• “It was extremely useful – I have been ploughing through the websites trying to navigate my way. Just identifying deadlines was almost impossible, let alone guidelines as to where the project I am considering will work.”
• “Up to your usual high standards – always my first port of call to check up on latest information about EU funding!”
• “I thought it all went very smoothly and the presentation, slides and speaker were very good”
All webinars start at 13.00 (UK time) / 14.00 (central European time) / 15.00 (eastern European time). Each will last for between 60-90 minutes.
