Public funding for S+T+ARTS projects: some tips to get closer

STARTS In MotionSeptember 18 2020 through October 4 20204 p.m. - 5 p.m.

The first edition of the STARTS in MOTION programme is almost coming to an end, but we couldn´t let the teams go without exploring further the world of public funding!

Within this session, participants will be provided with tailor-made info on the types of grants that match the art-science and art-tech projects. In particular, EU funding, such as H2020, Erasmus and Creative Europe will be peeled, keeping in mind the specificities of this kind of collaborations, that are embedded in arts, research, tech-driven and entail a component of sustainability and ethics. The scope of the different programmes and the spots to find information will be approached. The speaker will also give some tracks to find local and regional opportunities.

Thanks to her 10-year experience in grant seeking and application writing, the speaker will also provide some tips to get ready for an application: know the different and recurrent fields to complete, how to write a solid abstract, SMART objectives, what does expected impact exactly mean, how to elaborate your KPIs, how to present your team, and build your budget. In sum, the main elements you need to send a great application and multiply your chances to get funding.
