EU Grants

1st July 2008

IFTN reports that the European Parliament is seeking non-commercial television programme proposals for its 2009 grants scheme that will see €5 million awarded to communication and information across the 27 member states.

The grant will co-finance television projects which focus on the role played by the European Parliament, the values it upholds, the decisions it takes and how these affect the daily lives of millions of Europeans. The European Parliament seeks innovative and creative projects which approach this subject in a new and interesting way.

In addition to television programmes, grants will be awarded under four more headings: events, websites, proposals from education establishments and radio. The scheme, now in its third year, will see between €5,000 and €300,000 awarded to each project.

The closing date for applications is 1st October 2008.
