Euclid can help you understand and access EU opportunities for the arts, culture, heritage and creative industries – and, unlike the individual (and very useful) official contact points and information desks which focus on individual programmes, we can provide an oversight across the range of relevant EU opportunities.

Euclid offers occasional events & presentations across the EU – and also outside the UK – most recently in Denmark and Sweden.

Current services are as follows, and more details can be found further down this page.

  • webinars, seminars and conferences providing information on the broad range of EU funding and related opportunities
  • a detailed report which matches your organisation to relevant EU opportunities
  • help with your application to a specific EU funding programme
  • help with the management and financial reporting of your successful EU project

You can read testimonials on these services here.

Experience and Expertise in EU Funding

Euclid’s core EU funding experience includes:

  • Visiting Arts – UK Cultural Contact Point: Euclid provided a range of advisory services from Jan 2010 to December 2011 to VA in its role as the new UK Cultural Contact Point.
  • European Commission / EACEA – UK Cultural Contact Point: Euclid was the UK Cultural Contact Point from 1999-2009 inclusive, providing a range of information and advice to UK arts and cultural organisations to help them understand, and make successful applications to, the EU Culture programme.
  • REPORT: Culture Delivers…   The EU Structural Funds exist to support economic development in the less advantaged areas of Europe. This report documents over 1200 cultural projects supported by the Structural Funds across the UK in the 2000-2006 period, with an investment of over £400m. This report provides further and extensive evidence of the role of culture in economic and social development and regeneration.

The majority of the Euclid services will be provided by Geoffrey Brown, Director of Euclid.  Geoffrey is the UK’s leading independent expert on EU funding opportunities – he ran the UK CCP (Cultural Contact Point) for 11 years, has run around 200 CulturEuro seminars across the UK, in continental Europe and beyond, has advised a number of arts organisations on their development of their applications to EU programmes, has managed projects funded by the EU Kaleidoscope and Grundtvig programmes, and has prepared regular advice & guidance notes and undertaken several research reports on EU funding.  More detailed information about Geoffrey, and Euclid Associates, can be found here.
