NEW CALL FOR CULTURAL AND CREATIVE INDUSTRIES: ENCOURAGING IMPROVEMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE
This measure will be funded by the European Regional Development Fund React-EU and will receive EUR 4.16 million.
‘By encouraging the representatives of the creative sector to invest in infrastructure, we hope to help overcome the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and prepare for an environmentally friendly, digital and sustainable economic recovery’, says Saulius Merkys, Acting Director of the LBSA.
The aim of the measure is to encourage micro, small and medium-sized CCI enterprises to develop new digital products, and circular economy services and products by investing in the infrastructure necessary for the development of CCI products.
This may include construction, renovation, repair or other works to implement the activities. Applicants may also purchase new equipment, facilities or other assets that will contribute to the development of new products and services in line with the principles of the circular/digital economy.
‘The LBSA specialists will organise training and advice for all those who have questions when preparing applications for this measure’, says Giedrė Indriulienė, Head of the LBSA’s Business Sustainability Projects Division.
Depending on the SME’s activity, projects will be financed with an intensity of up to 70–80%.
Applications for the call will be accepted until 28 March 2022.
