The International Delegation Tour (or IDT) call is part of a project, funded by the European Commission, called EMX. The EMX project’s aim is to test new strategies to develop and promote the export of European Music. Hand in hand with networks representing European music professionals, artists, musicians, authors and composers, the general objective of this work will be to experiment with different approaches to reinforce the international foothold of the EU music sector, and generate new knowledge to European music export through research and innovative pilot actions. The International Delegation Tour is one of these pilot actions.
For this call EMX are seeking applications from a consortium of music-related organisations from at least two different EU countries, which will organise – with their advice and financial support – a week-long event in the first half of 2022.
The IDT will consist of an incoming delegation of 20 international (non-EU) music industry professionals visiting at least 2 EU countries and taking part in a mix of 1-1 meetings, networking events, company visits, live music with European music professionals, as well as any other activity or event that the partners would deem fit for purpose.
Applicants must all fit the following criteria:
- Companies/organisation must be legally registered and based in an EU country.
- Companies/organisations must have a minimum of 2 years existence since registration.
- They must have previous experience running professional events for music industry professionals (trade missions, and/or networking events, conferences, roundtables, etc.).
EMX will provide the winning application with 35,000€ (VAT included) in budget.
