The European Year for Cultural Heritage (EYCH) team announces that the Creative Europe Call to support cooperation projects related to EYCH 2018 has been launched.
You can access the Call for proposals (Call EACEA 35/2017, category 3 of projects) here.
The Call will support transnational cooperation projects linked to some specific objectives of the EYCH. It is an invitation to cultural actors across the EU to get involved in the Year’s activities to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space and to promote cultural heritage as a source of inspiration for contemporary artistic creation.
Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor Navracsics said: 
"Today, we are taking another step to making the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 a reality (…) We are looking for projects that will highlight the European dimension of our rich cultural heritage in all its forms. As President Juncker said in his State of the Union Address, we must celebrate cultural diversity in 2018." 
In total, €5 million will be available for heritage projects under the dedicated call. 
This call is published in parallel with the 2018 general call for support of smaller- and larger-scale European cooperation projects in the field of culture with an expected budget of 40 million euro, for which cultural heritage -related projects will be eligible, too. 
The deadline for submission is 22 November 2017. The start date for successful projects should be between January and September 2018, with the maximum duration of a project being 24 months.
