This is not another seminar! European funding for performers

The GDA Foundation organized this meeting in Lisbon (27 and 28 June 2016) and in Porto (11 and 12 July 2016) with the purpose of facilitating access to information about European funding opportunities and to clarify doubts.

The world of European funding is unfamiliar to many performers in Portugal and presents itself as something complex in terms of its language and procedures. Names such as Portugal 2020, Creative Europe, Erasmus +, Horizon 2020 or Operational Programmes may be part of our everyday lives, however we do not know if we are eligible to benefit from them or how to proceed.

This meeting was comprised of a presentation section, which introduced and explained the various funding programmes that exist, and by a more practical segment, which aimed to exemplify the application process (announcements, project design, Portal 2020) and presented some concrete examples of Portuguese projects that were awarded European funding and that could serve as inspiration. The objective was to facilitate the interpretation of the available information and increase the autonomy and capacity of performers who wish to or have the need to apply for European funding.
