The UK CCP is launching weekly surgeries in London

Struggling with your application to the Culture programme? Not sure about your proposed activities? Can’t quite understand the 3 objectives or the 7 key criteria? Lost in the various parts of the application forms? Having problems with the budget spreadsheets? HELP IS AT HAND!

Surgeries provide assistance for organisations at a relatively advanced stage in the development of an application to the EU Culture programme – i.e. organisations who have all (or nearly all) their partners and are in the process of completing the actual application forms.

Surgeries are not the place to go for general information on EU funding for culture or on the EU Culture programme itself. Apart from this website, general information is also provided via the Information Days offered by the CCP during the year, and the ‘CulturEuro’ seminars offered by Euclid (

To make best use of your surgery time (up to 45 minutes), it is essential that you send, prior to your surgery, a brief summary which includes:

  • which Strand you are applying to (1.1, 1.2.1, 1.2.2, 1.3.5, 1.3.6, 2, 3.2)
  • a list of partner organisations and status of their commitment 
  • your (draft) project summary (part B.2 of application form)
  • how your project will address the Culture Programme’s three specific objectives
  • a summary of the proposed project activities/events, and their locations

Surgeries will take place on Wednesday afternoons, 2-6pm in central London.
