i-Portunus is a project, selected and funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, to trial a mobility scheme for artists and culture professionals. It is managed by a consortium headed by the Goethe-Institut with Institut français, Izolyatsia and Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts.

Being a pilot mobility scheme i-Portunus is to assess the current State of the Art in terms of the mobility of artists and culture professionals, focusing on the different target groups.

The aim of the operational study, conducted by On the Move for the consortium, is to provide an analysis of the context and meaning of cultural mobility in Europe today, the needs in the sector and the strengths and weaknesses of existing cultural mobility schemes, as well as to define the most operational framework to implement first the pilot scheme and in the short/mid-term an EU mobility scheme for artists and culture professionals.
