What events does Europeana Research support with its Event Grants Programme?

The grants are intended for organising conferences, workshops, a series of seminars, summer schools, training activities. If you have in mind an event that does not fit into these categories, make sure that it is eligible by emailing We are open to new and innovative ideas.

Do I need to be a heritage professional or a researcher in order to apply?

Formally, our grants will be not allocated to individuals but to institutions, which can be cultural heritage or research institutions, comprising universities. A representative of each awardee institution will be asked to sign a subcontract with the Europeana Foundation.

I am from a non-EU country, may I apply?

The nationality of the event organiser, meant as an individual, has no relevance. The organising institution has to be based in one of the EU member states.

My institution is a Europeana DSI-4 partner, may I apply?

Unfortunately, Europeana DSI-4 project partners are NOT eligible for this call. Check the list before applying.

My institution was awarded a Europeana research grant in the past. Can I apply again?

Yes, this is a different type of grant.

Can I apply for the whole programme grant of EUR 25,000?

Yes, you can. However, to maximize the programme’s impact, we are looking to support several proposals.

Is VAT included in the grant?

The grant is a gross amount and will include VAT and all applicable taxes. Please make sure that you include them in the budget part of your application.

Can I work with third-party subcontractors for my research project?

Yes, but the Europeana Foundation will not be responsible for subcontracts with third parties.

My institution is based in the UK. May I apply?
