The event, taking place in Ljubljana and organized in cooperation with CED offices from Austria (BKA Kunst und Kultur) and Croatia (Ministry of Culture of the Rep. of Croatia) as well as with Land Steiermark, is aimed at encouraging cultural, educational, non-governmental organizations, municipalities etc., to participate within various EU funding programs.
Any project idea usually addresses specific goals of the selected EU program. Nevertheless, by upgrading the partnership and the content, such project could simultaneously address priorities relevant also to other EU programs.
After the introductory session dedicated to presentations of “good practice” projects from the fields of culture, education and European citizenship, the participants will be encouraged to upgrade the existing project ideas. During an interactive workshop, they will try to address objectives of one or more programs: Europe for Citizens, Creative Europe and Erasmus+ (including eTwinning action). In addition, guests from the Alps-Adriatic-Alliance will present a special funding mechanism aimed at stimulating interregional cooperation between the neighbors – Austria, Slovenia and Croatia.
