  1. The Crossroads for Culture project is aimed at strengthening EUNIC’s capacity to enable cultural players from all EU Member states to work transnationally, internationalise cultural and creative sectors and further enhance the European cultural relations sector.

    This project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme as part of its support to European networks. After a first selection in 2014, EUNIC was awarded a subsequent grant for the period of 2017 through 2021.
  1. EUNIC Global is a consortium member of the Cultural Diplomacy Platform.

    The mission of the Platform is to strengthen the EU’s ability to engage meaningfully with different audiences and stakeholders in its partner countries, through enhanced cultural relations and cultural cooperation.

    The main objectives are to: Support the further development of cultural diplomacy policies, activities, methodologies, tools and training programmes, within the broader framework of EU Public Diplomacy; Assist in policy dialogues and advise on cultural diplomacy issues; and Strengthen communities/networks of cultural diplomacy practitioners.

    The Cultural Diplomacy Platform is implemented by a consortium composed of the British Council, Centre for Fine Arts/BOZAR, EUNIC-Global, European Cultural Foundation, the Institut-Français and led by Goethe-Institut, that has been selected through a Call for tender.

  1. EUNIC Global is running a Cluster Development Programme to enhance the capacity of EUNIC members to work together by means of clusters. The programme consists of a series of regional meetings of EUNIC clusters and members operating in a region to develop a strategic approach to their work.

    The programme is financed under EUNIC Crossroads for Culture - Enhancing EU Member States Transnational and International Cooperation project under the Creative Europe Programme.
  1. Knowledge sharing workshops are hosted by EUNIC member organisations for professional exchange on operations and management. The serve the statutory purpose of EUNIC to share best practices and discuss issues of common interest.

    In the workshop, key senior staff members and sometimes external stakeholders meet to discuss on a variety of issues deemed relevant for the strengthening of the network and its members.

    Find out more about past topics for knowledge sharing workshops in the members section.
  1. EUNIC clusters develop and implement collaborative cultural relations projects across the world. Activities are based on three-year strategies.

    EUNIC clusters engage in partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders, from local cultural actors to national authorities to international players, and seek strategic partnership to EU Delegations or Representations in the host country.
