About The Europe Challenge programme

The Europe Challenge is an annual programme that brings together libraries and communities across Europe to address pressing challenges in their local areas. The programme was first launched in 2020 by the European Cultural Foundation and partners.

Libraries and communities apply to the programme via an annual open call. The programme offers them:

  • a series of online and in-person workshops and mentoring sessions;
  • funding of up to EUR 10.000 (optional);
  • additional peer-to-peer exchange opportunities, networking and travel.

The open call Europe Challenge 2024: Libraries, Communities and Democracy is now closed. The Europe Challenge 2024 is kindly supported by Fondazione Cariplo, the Scottish Libraries and Information Council, and public funding by Arts Council England. The programme delivery partners in 2024 are ChangencyOBA and Public Libraries 2030.

To be the first to know when a new open call will be launched, please subscribe to the European Cultural Foundation’s newsletter and continue following the updates on this website.
