EUNIC Cluster Fund Call for Proposals 2019: Open for applications until 6 November

The 2019 Cluster Fund Call is now open for applications. The call aims at co-financing EUNIC cultural relations projects that contribute to the principles of people-to-people approach, co-creation, mutual listening and learning. All EUNIC clusters are welcome to submit their projects until 6 November.

Eleven EUNIC members have contributed a total of 191.700 Euros to this year's Cluster Fund: Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, AECID, Goethe-Institut, French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, British Council, Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Instituto Cervantes, Austrian Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs, Swedish Institute, Institut français, and Dutch Culture.
Clusters can apply for up to 15.000 Euros, representing not more than 50% of the total project budget. Submitted proposals need to involve a minimum of three full EUNIC members and the project needs to be aligned with the three-year strategy of the cluster. EUNIC clusters are welcome to share their applications with the EUNIC Global team prior to submission for feedback until 31 October.
