Tandem Europe > Open call

Tandem Europe is a cross-border collaboration program that aims at social change through cultural innovation activities. You and your initiative, organisation, institution or social enterprise are eligible to apply. With Tandem, you join a growing community of cultural innovators and social change makers, who are deeply engaged in maintaining and reshaping a common European future.

Non-profit organisations, public institutions, civil society initiatives, innovative local administrations as well as creative or social enterprises that are engaged with cultural activities in their societies AND are based in one of the Council of Europe member states (plus Belarus). 

Up to 32 applicants and their colleagues are invited to the Tandem Europe Partner Forum in 2019, where they find new networking opportunities and – most importantly – their potential Tandem partner.
Together with their new partner, they apply for the full programme with a collaboration idea and a first sketch of the Tandem partnership they envisage. For the main programme phase, up to 12 Tandems are selected. Each new collaboration pair benefits from a placement opportunity at their Tandem-partner organisation abroad, three peer-to-peer innovation, learning and networking meetings as well as financial and mentoring support to prototype their collaboration ideas.

Among the different cost covered are the eimbursement of travel costs and living expenses during project events and placements • € 5000 start-up funding for testing a shared pilot collaboration idea.

Deadline: 15 November 2018
