We bring final results of open call focused on cultural heritage revitalization. In total, 16 projects were supported across the Czech Republic and all support areas.
The single open call dedicated to the restoration and revitalization of movable and immovable cultural heritage, was open in December 2019. By April 2020, 135 applications were submitted. Two thirds of them were prepared in cooperation with partners from Norway (75), Iceland (11) and Liechtenstein (5).
Unfortunately, the final evaluation, given the limited funding allocated to this call, could not satisfy all applicants even though the overall quality of the submitted applications was at a very high and often equivalent level. Therefore, independent experts had a difficult task to select the best of the best projects. Overall, 16 projects were selected. They standed out thanks to their clearly focused concept of activities and also met all objectives of the programme.
Subsequent verification of the evaluation process confirmed that the evaluation provided by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic (Programme partner) was held in a transparent manner in line with the rules of the EEA Grants 2014-2020, the Culture Programme and the open call. Also, the recommended applications meet all conditions for approval. Therefore, the final results are available on this website. The list of supported projects can be downloaded below.
Grant was received by projects representing most of the support areas – movable cultural monuments and collections (fine art, historical, decorative art and ethnographic objects, crafts), library collections (books, written heritage, photography), securing of movable and immovable cultural heritage and immovable cultural heritage (two thirds). All supported projects were prepared in cooperation with partners from donor states, from Norway (13), Iceland (1) and both countries (2).
Supported projects will be gradually introduced on our website. We believe that all of them will carefully restore and save unique cultural heritage and bring life to localities where cultural, educational, social and other impact will be significant.
Applicants are notified about their results via the data box and in the IS CEDR. Information on evaluation details of individual applications are not published.
Due to the exhausted allocation, the open call will not be repeated in the current programming period.
