CulturEU: New Online Guide Informs on EU Funding for Cultural Sector
The European Commission recently launched a new interactive guide mapping all funding opportunities available at EU level for the cultural and creative sectors.
CulturEU, a one-stop shop for EU funding, gathers a total of 75 funding opportunities from 21 different EU programmes, from Creative Europe and Horizon Europe to structural funds and InvestEU. In just a few clicks, the interactive online tool can direct any European cultural entity to the most appropriate EU financial support available to it.
The guide was developed to help all types and sizes of partners working in the cultural and creative sectors to navigate the EU funding landscape, to understand which opportunities are available to them, and ultimately help them to access EU funding more easily.
Interested parties can automatically filter relevant funding opportunities based on their needs, their sector and the type of organisation they represent. It is supplemented by inspiring examples and best practices.
CulturEU will be regularly updated with the most recent information on new calls coming out, and will be available in all EU languages in early 2022.

“The cultural and creative sectors have been hit hard by the wide-ranging restrictions, set in place during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Commission said.
Since the onset of the pandemic, the Commission has taken several actions at EU level to support the creative and cultural sectors, including: increasing EU financial support to the cultural and creative sectors, with almost 2.5 billion euros from Creative Europe, and close to 2 billion euros from Horizon Europe dedicated to cultural, creative and inclusive projects from 2021 to 2027; dedicating funds from the Recovery and Resilience Facility; and approving national aid under the State aid Temporary Framework for a total amount of over 420 million euros.
