Implementing Steps to Develop and Promote European Music Export


The purpose of this tender is to generate knowledge and spread understanding about as well as explore new approaches for the export of European music by piloting some actions of the strategy.

The results will inform possible future actions to implement the sectorial support for music and international dimension of the future Creative Europe Programme 2021-2027.

The implementation of the activities of this tender is expected to take place in a post-Covid-19 environment and therefore take into consideration the feasible options and potential limitations related to it.

Music Moves Europe – Innovative support scheme for a sustainable music ecosystem


To implement the 2020 Preparatory action “Music Moves Europe: Boosting European music diversity and talent” (with a budget of €2.5 million) this call for proposals addresses the need to support the green, digital, just and resilient recovery and post-Covid-19-crisis development of the European music ecosystem to help it become more sustainable.

The European music ecosystem belongs to one of the cultural segments that were hit the most by the corona crisis – with an unprecedented impact on the sector’s entire value chain and massive losses incurred. The crisis’ significant short-term consequences for the sector have been addressed with emergency action and safety nets at different levels. Additional steps are needed to help the sector recover in a more sustainable way, adjust to new realities and newly emerging trends, and ultimately become more resilient.

The Commission will select one consortium that will design and manage an innovative and effective support scheme that redistributes grants to recipients in the music sector, based on a needs assessment. The Commission expects to select the consortium by November 2020, to ensure that the funds can reach the recipients as early as possible in 2021.
This Call complements other national and EU initiatives and schemes that help mitigate the negative impact of the Covid-19 crisis on culture in general and music in particular.
