EUNIC Job Shadowing Initiative 2020-2021 launched
EUNIC’s mobility scheme for cultural professionals, the Job Shadowing Initiative, enables colleagues working in the network to exchange knowledge and gain skills. Interested colleagues can apply until 1 August 2020.
Have you ever wondered how other EUNIC members plan their programmes worldwide? How clusters collaborate successfully? How EUNIC Global works with the EU institutions in Brussels? Then the EUNIC Job Shadowing Initiative is just for you. Visit colleagues in your city or country or around the world, or engage in an online exchange. The 2020/2021 edition is now open for applications until 1 August 2020.
Mobility of cultural professionals is called for in the Council Conclusions on International Cultural Relations of April 2019. EUNIC’s initiative contributes to the implementation of this priority. In the first edition of 2019/2020, 63 colleagues from 33 countries were selected to visit 18 hosts from the EUNIC network. 16 colleagues were matched to visit the EUNIC Global office.
This year there are 31 hosting offers. Browse all offers in this overview.
1 August 2020: Deadline for applications
August: Selection of participants and matching of the specific requests
September 2020-June 2021: Job Shadowing visits taking place
Duration of visits
The visits should provide a meaningful learning experience for colleagues and could last from a few days to one or two weeks.
EUNIC Global has allocated a limited amount of budget under the Crossroads for Culture project for the EUNIC Job Shadowing Initiative to partially cover travel and accommodation costs for participants. The sending EUNIC member organisations are encouraged to finance or co-finance the costs of their staff members’ visit. The exact formalities will be agreed once the matching has been made.
The initiative is open to all colleagues working for a EUNIC member organisation – in the head office or a branch – until 1 August 2020. Colleagues can also request a specific placement if their interests are not covered by the offers.
