Call for Ideas: Northern Spaces for Creative Innovation

Creating spaces where cross-sectorial collaboration and innovation can flourish

The Northern Spaces for Creative Innovation Call for Ideas is open to cultural and creative industries (CCI) professionals from Northern Dimension countries to submit their cross-innovation project ideas.  

Organisations from the cultural and creative industries sector are invited to test collaboration models and processes that create spaces, whether physical or digital, for cross-sectoral collaboration and innovation in the Northern Dimension countries. Moreover, we are looking for collaboration models that connect the CCI field with the digital, economic, environmental, social, education and other sectors, building up a cross-sectoral cooperation ecosystem.

The call is open to organisations working in one or more of the Northern Dimension partner countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia, and Sweden. 

A minimum of three partners from the Northern Dimension countries are required with one of them administering the application. The project team should include a diversity of stakeholders in the concerned country(ies), including at least one partner representing a non-CCI sector.

At this stage, you can apply for the amount between 5000–10 000 EUR. If your idea is selected, you and your partners will have six months to test and up-scale it and apply to implement your project for up to a total amount of 60 000 EUR.
