The Executive Agency has developed an on-line submission tool.

Download the eForm: Please download the relevant eForm for the Culture Programme.
You need to have the Adobe Reader version 8.1.5 or higher installed on your computer in order to able to download and complete the eForm. If you don't have it on your computer, please click here to download the latest version of Adobe Reader.
You will also find on this page all technical issues related to the eForm:
The section E.2 of the German version of the e-form should be read as follows: Welche Rolle hat Ihre Einrichtung bei der Durchführung des Projekts (bitte fassen Sie Ihre Antwort von Punkt B.2 zusammen)'
Leider hat sich im deutschen Text des E-Formulars ein Fehler eingeschlichen. Im Abschnitt E wird nach der Rolle des Koordinators und der Koordinatoren bei der Planung, der Durchführung und der Kofinanzierung gefragt. Was die Durchführung anbelangt, muss der Formulartext richtig heißen: 'Welche Rolle hat Ihre Einrichtung bei der Durchführung des Projekts (bitte fassen Sie Ihre Antwort von Punkt B.2 zusammen)'
In order to fill in your application eForm properly:
- please carefully read the Culture eForm User Guide.
It contains useful technical information.
The following annexes will have to be attached to the eForm and submitted on-line at the same time:
1/ the detailed description of the project, in word or pdf format (there is no template for this document).
2/ the signed Declaration on honour (you should sign, scan and attach the document to the eForm)
3/ the estimated budget form
The minimum requirement for Mac users is Office 2004. A known problem for Mac users is that the drop-down menu in column B of the ‘Detailed budget by activities’ part of the budget form does not appear. As no technical solution for this problem is available, we provide the list of values for this field in the first sheet called 'Content of the budget' of the budget form. If the values are copied exactly (case-sensitive), the formulas behind the field work.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is an eligible country under the Culture Programme (the Memorandum of Understanding has been signed on 21/12/2010. Please refer to this page for more information http://ec.europa.eu/culture/key-documents/doc1209_en.htm).
Albania will participate in the Culture Programme (2007-2013) as from 01/01/2012 onwards on the condition that a Memorandum of Understanding concerning their participation in the Culture Programme is signed with the European Union. Please refer to this link to have an update on this question.
Under the condition that the Memorandum of Understanding is signed by both parties and enters into force on 01/01/2012, organisations having their registered legal seat in Albania will be eligible under the Culture Programme as from 01/01/2012.
In the meantime, applications sent by organisations having their registered seat in Albania and starting as from 01/01/2012 will be provisionally considered eligible for the next deadlines of strands 1.1 and 1.2.1 (05/10/2011).
Coorganisers having their registered seat in Albania and involved in projects submitted under the above deadline for strands 1.1 and 1.2.1 will also be provisionally considered eligible.
If the Memorandum is not signed or is signed with a starting date later than 01/01/2012, the applications and/or coorganisers from Albania will be considered ineligible or eligible as from the date of entry into force of the Memorandum.
Therefore it is advisable to add a supplementary coorganiser to the minimum of coorganisers requested in case you want to involve a coorganiser from Albania.
