Barcelona, Vilnius and Brussels : three places and three days of information to demystify the Culture program

What European funding possibilities are open in the field of culture for the coming years? What is the latest news with regards to the Culture Program of the European Union? How can you increase the chances of your project being selected? How can you find European partners? Answers to all these questions can be found at Infodays Culture 2009, to be held in Barcelona on May 15, Vilnius on May 29, and Brussels on June 11.

“Three locations—to make it easier for you to attend the one closest to your home and in your preferred language—but a single agenda brought to you by the European Commission (Directorate-General Education and Culture) and the Education, Audiovisual & Culture Executive Agency, which manages most aspects of the Culture Program,” indicates the European Commission on its website.

“Each of these days aims to inform you of the program's priorities and what's new for 2009. Whether you are a newcomer or experienced in working on EU-funded culture projects, the Infodays will provide targeted practical advice on the preparation and submission of applications (administrative and financial aspects) and on the management of grants. You will have the opportunity to come into direct contact with the key players of the Culture Program from the European Commission, the Executive Agency, and the Cultural Contact Points (CCPs) and to interact with other stakeholders of the program.”

For more information on these events, please consult the European Commission website.
