What is it for ?

  • To contribute to citizens' understanding of the EU, its history and diversity
  • To raise awareness of remembrance, common history and values and the aim of the EU

This strand supports activities inviting reflection on European cultural diversity and on common values. It aims to finance projects reflecting on causes of totalitarian regimes in Europe's modern history (especially, but not exclusively, Nazism that led to the Holocaust, Fascism, Stalinism and totalitarian communist regimes) and to commemorate the victims of their crimes.

This strand also concerns other defining moments and reference points in recent European history. Preference will be given to projects encouraging tolerance, mutual understanding, intercultural dialogue and reconciliation.

Projects under this strand should

  • Include different types of organisations (local authorities, NGOs, research institutes etc.)
  • Develop different types of activities (research, exhibitions, public debates, non-formal education etc.)
  • Involve citizens from different target groups
  • Be implemented on a transnational level, or with a clear European dimension

Action grants

  • For actions with a limited timeframe during which specific activities are implemented
  • The maximum eligible grant for a project is 100 000 €.
  • The maximum project duration is 18 months.


 Who can apply

Public local/regional authorities or non-profit organisations, including civil society organisations, survivors' associations and cultural, youth, educational and research organisations, associations of twinned towns.

A project must involve organisations from at least one member state. Preference will be given to transnational projects.

How Are Applications Selected

Applicants must have:

  • Sufficient sources of funding to maintain their activity for the duration of the proposed action (Financial capacity check does not apply to public bodies and low value grants up to 60,000 €)

  • Consistency with the objectives of the programme and programme strand
