More EU Funding Possibilities

The European Union uses quite a few actions to fund various areas of society within its Member and Associated States. Along with the framework program HORIZON 2020, the structural funds and other programs support research and innovation, as well as regional development, climate protection, and education.

Protecting the environment and nature in the 2014-2020 program LIFE

From the perspective of sustainability, the 2014-2020 program LIFE supports environmental policies and laws developed and enacted by the EU. This program is divided into two subsections:

LIFE: Nature and Biodiversity

LIFE: Environmental Policy and Governance

CREATIVE EUROPE Program 2014-2020

On behalf of the European Commission, the Education, Audiovisual, and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) published the dossiers for the first application round in the new program CREATIVE EUROPE. In the subsection CULTURE, people can apply for financial aid for small and large collaborative projects, European networks, European platforms, and translation projects for works of fiction:

European collaborative projects seek to help make European cultural and creative fields internationally more functional, fund the international mobility of people who are active in these fields, support the spread of cultural works across borders, reach new audiences, and put innovations in the field of culture to the test.

Funding for European networks seeks to support the alliance of organizations representing the culture and creativity sectors and aims to strengthen the transnational and international capabilities and networking of these sectors in order to support their cultural and linguistic diversity and competitiveness.

European platforms seek to support cultural and creative organizations that finance the development of young talents and the transnational mobility of cultural and creative stakeholders, as well as the spread of works, in order to comprehensively influence the cultural and creative sectors and achieve long-lasting effects.

CULTURE will continue to support translations of fictional works of literature that support cultural and linguistic diversity in the European Union and its neighboring countries, and it will improve the international distribution of and access to literary works by developing new audiences.

The Cultural Contact Point Germany is the national contact center for the European funding program Creative Europe.

Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (EAHC)

This agency was founded in 2005 as the Executive Agency for the Health Program and was converted into the Executive Agency for Health and Consumers in 2008. The EAHC implements programs for health and consumer protection and the initiative "Better Schooling for Safer Food" with various funding actions.

Program for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and SMEs (COSME)

The new program for corporate and small/medium enterprise (SME) competitiveness, which runs from 2014-2020, is a financing instrument that in essence continues the measures of the current competitiveness and innovation program (CIP).

The general goals of the program are as follows:

Improve SME access to financing in the form of investments and loans: First, an equity facility will be made available to the SME for investments during the growth phase. Financial intermediaries will allocate reimbursable investment capital—mostly in the form of venture capital—that targets commercial goals. Second, within the scope of a credit facility, loans via direct agreements or other risk-sharing agreements will be secured for the SME.

Ease access to markets within the EU and worldwide: The Enterprise Europe Network provides growth-oriented support to businesses in order to facilitate corporate expansion in the domestic market. Within this program, the business activities of SMEs outside of the EU will also be supported. Furthermore, international industrial collaboration is encouraged, especially when it comes to reducing the differences between the EU and its trade partners in the regulatory and corporate environment.

Funding entrepreneurial initiative: These actions include the development of business skills and attitudes, especially among start-up companies and young people.
