Home » New Horizon Europe funding calls open – Cluster 2 “Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society”: here is all the information and our reports!

On Oct. 4, the new European funding calls of the Horizon Europe – Cluster 2: “Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society” program allocated by the European Commission were launched.

Cluster 2 is devoted to challenges related to the management of democratic governance, cultural heritage and the creativity industry, as well as social and economic developments.

The main objective of the intervention is to enable policy makers and practitioners to address target issues by adopting new models and policies for change in a context of rapid change, transitions and global connections.

The budget allocated by the European Commission will be € 2.281 billion , and the deadline for calls for proposals is set for February 7, 2024.

The program was declined into 3 destinations with related subtopics. Here are the ones that we find particularly interesting and promising:

Destination 1 “Innovative Research on Democracy and Governance”

Destination 2 “Innovative Research on the European Cultural Heritage and the Cultural and Creative Industries”

For us, this destination is at the heart of action for the cultural and creative area and presents several opportunities of great significance and interest. Here are the subtopics:

  • The development of strategies to strengthen European language capital in a globalized world, including implementation measures and processes that are socially sustainable and affordable in the short and medium term.
  • Leveraging the digital transition to make European cultural and creative industries competitive with validated and refined measures to increase the use of innovative digital technologies.
  • Promoting the European cultural and artistic heritage of values at home and abroad by increasing visibility and testing pilot solutions based on models that enable cooperation between various levels: local, national and European.
  • The search for innovative solutions to successfully implement strategic investments in the spirit of the New European Bauhaus initiative in cultural heritage and CCI, including through greater citizen involvement and social inclusion in the preservation and enhancement of cultural heritage.
  • The goal of making Europe’s CCIs real drivers of a sustainable climate transition in line with the 2030 targets set as part of the European Green Deal.

Destination 3 “Innovative Research on Social and Economic Transformations”

  • Public or private universities and research centers
