EU information for beneficiaries whose activities are impacted by coronavirus

On 6 March 2020, the EACEA, Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency, released a notion on the potential effect of COVID-19 on EU funded projects that might be hindered, or partially / temporarily affected, by mobility restrictions.

The statement says that the ordinary implementation of any planned actions should be normally carried out, as far as possible, and it is for the participating organisations and individuals to decide on the appropriate and proportionate course of action to take in the light of the measures formally adopted by the competent authorities.

EACEA also reminds that all the Agreements contain a “force majeure” clause which may apply to mobility restrictions, as a direct consequence of the measures taken by the competent national authorities in charge. However, please note thatthe existence of an event of “force majeure” suitable to concretely hinder the ordinary implementation of the planned actions will be analysed on a “case-by-case” basis, and in due time, i.e. when the eligibility of the costs will be assessed.

Read the full statement and find addition information.

Creative Europre has also released a statement about consequences for Creative Europe programme and related activities due to the coronavirus. Creative Europe and the EACEA (Executive Agency) are applying maximum flexibility in the implementation of the programme, within the limits of the applicable legal framework.

NEMO is following the spread of COVID-19 and its effect on the museum sector closely. NEMO finds that it is important to gather and compile information of how museums are dealing with the coronavirus. We have created a very short survey that we ask the European museum community to please fill out.
