EULAT 4 Culture: Support to cultural relations between Europe and Latin America

On the occasion of AECID's presidency of EUNIC during 2021-2022, a special call for proposals supporting Europe - Latin America cultural relations was launched in February and closed on 8 April 2022. In this framework, 20 proposals have been selected to receive 9,000 euros each for a total of 180,000 euros.

The call was initiated by AECID with dedicated funding from the Spanish government. It is implemented in cooperation with EUNIC and the selected 20 EUNIC clusters worldwide.

The principal aim of the call was to put into action the Joint statement EUNIC/RIDCULT adopted at the June 2021 EUNIC General Assembly in Toledo, with the purpose of fostering the contribution of culture to promoting dialogue, knowledge and exchange between the peoples of Europe and Latin America in diverse global settings.

The evaluation was based on four selection criteria: contribution to the purposes of the special call and the EUNIC/RIDCULT joint statement, relevance to the local context, alignment with cultural relations principles and partnership. Furthermore, proposals needed to include participation of at least three EUNIC members and two RIDCULT member country embassies.

The EUNIC office team conducted the eligibility check and met with colleagues from AECID and Instituto Cervantes for the joint selection. Out of the 24 proposals submitted, 2 were not eligible and 20 proposals were selected to receive 9,000 euros each, for a total amount of 180,000 euros. These projects are involving 23 EUNIC members, 11 EU Delegations and over 65 local partners.
