European Creative Hubs' Network > Peer-to-peer scheme round 2: Open Call for Applications

The P2P scheme is a mobility exchange programme to support the development and networking of creative hubs leaders across Europe. It is set-up to help creative hubs staff (leaders, founders, managers, projects or platform leads, community managers, etc.) benefit from a work experience in a different creative hub, with the aim of sharing knowledge or setting up collaborative projects.

The Peer-to-peer (P2P) exchange scheme sets up to boost collaborative work and knowledge exchange between creative hubs in Europe.  By supporting the mobility of creative hub leaders to other hubs, we enable learning and exchange of best practices, and foster international collaboration and co-creation. P2P is an activity of the European Creative Hubs Network, which is co-funded by the European Commission. This activity is led by the British Council.

The European Creative Hubs Network has therefore planned to support 50 beneficiaries in experiencing working in a different Creative Hub and learning from the experience or setting up a collaborative project. The grants have a value of 1000 EUR, and are aimed to help cover partially the costs of travel, accommodation and subsistence of beneficiaries who set up for a work experience in a different creative hub. Because this grant is seen as a partial financial aid, peers are encouraged to spend at least 3 full working days in the hosting creative hub, but there is no upper limitation on the amount of time beneficiaries can spend in another creative hub.

Eligibility:

  • Based in Europe:Running established or emerging hubs (and everything in between);

    •  All 28 EU Member States;
    • Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia, Turkey;
    • Norway, Iceland.
  • Running multidisciplinary or sector specific creative hubs;

  • Full of inspiring ideas and best practices on partnership development, governance, non-traditional funding initiatives, cross-sectoral expansion, collaboration on projects, business models, etc.

  • Showing motivation to learn from, connect with and share experience with other creative hubs managers.

Deadline: 23 April 2017
