42
How to Start Steps towards Success
  • Identification of the appropriate programme for
    your project idea many programmes are relevant
    to the arts and cultural sector but the focus is
    often different!
  • Most programmes are transnational You need a
    minimum of three or four partner organisations

43
Steps towards Success
  • It is an advantage if you know your partners in
    advance and have worked already together!
  • Well developed partnerships are a key factor for
    successful applications and projects
  • Identify similar projects
  • Identify sources of co-financing your project

44
Steps towards Success
  • Monitor calls for proposals
  • Carefully read the application form and
    supporting documentation (every programme will
    differ more or less from another!)
  • Prepare application in consultation with partners
  • Inform your local contact point about your
    application

45
Why European Partners
  • Apart from formal requirements European partners
    give your project an European dimension
  • Choose partners from different European regions
  • What is the specific role of each partner? Do
    they bring new and different strengths to a
    project?

46
European Dimension
  • What is your project's approach to Europe?
  • Do you understand the goals of the European
    Union?
  • Does the project go beyond national interests?
  • Transfer of know-how Europe-wide?

47
Partners
  • Compatibility (similar values goals)
  • Communications (E-mail, quick responses)
  • Experience in carrying out EU-funded projects is
    an asset
  • Stability

48
How to search partners
  • Start early (even if you are not currently
    thinking about a specific project)
  • Contact potential partners via E-mail
  • Use Google to identify them
  • Use specific data-bases e.g. for Culture 2000
    http//agora.mcu.es/pcc/index.htm
  • Join international meetings organised by national
    contact points

49
Other points to consider
  • Project must not be started before official
    project lifetime
  • How much money can your organisation invest?
    EU-funding covers almost never 100. Usually
    30-75
  • Co-financing national/regional funds,
    foundations, sponsoring

50
Other points to consider
  • Duration of application procedures project
    starts sometimes more than one year after
    submission of application.
  • Is your project/idea innovative? (partnership,
    sustainability, methodology, ICT, type of
    co-operation)
  • Dissemination Make project results accessible,
    many European citizens should have an advantage
    of your project
