Potential upcoming European Commission funding available for European remembrance projects

Darparwyd yr eitem hon i Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918 yn Saesneg yn unig.

The European Commission (EC) has announced a new funding package called ‘European remembrance’, the final details and call for projects will shortly be released, but we understand that a First World War theme will be encouraged.

An organisation from Wales could bid for this money on its own as long as it has a strong European dimension. A stronger case can be made, if a project has a partner or two in another member state of the EU.

These projects will:

  • Contribute to citizens’ understanding of the European Union (EU), its history and diversity.
  • Raise awareness of remembrance, common history, values and aims of the EU.

Requirements:

  • Preference will be given to projects that encourage tolerance, mutual understanding, intercultural dialogue and reconciliation.
  • The maximum eligible grant for a project is €100,000 (approximately £82,800).
  • The maximum project duration is 18 months.
  • Public local/regional authorities or non-profit organisations, including civil society organisations, survivors’ associations and cultural, youth, educational and research organisations, associations of twinned towns can apply.
  • Deadline of the 4th June 2014 for projects on European remembrance.
  • Projects must start between 1 August 2014 and 31 Jan 2015 and one of the priorities for this year is the 100th anniversary of the beginning of First World War.
