There will be fifteen study visits in total, until summer 2016; this call relates to the first five, taking place in Nantes, Wallonia, Bologna, Dundee and Nord-Pas de Calais. Participation is open to representatives of local and regional authorities, in European countries participating in the Creative Europe (Culture) Programme. The study visits will enable participants to learn from their hosts, and consider whether and how best practices can be transferred. The first call will be online until 9 July.  Funding is available to cover for participants' accommodation and travel costs. The three-year project, managed by EUROCITIESKEA European Affairs, and the European Regions Research and Innovation Network (ERRIN), aims to examine existing cultural initiatives and their impact on local and regional development strategies, and to support exchange of information and practices to increase understanding of the effects of investment in the culture sector.

There are three broad themes for the initiatives / case studies: cultural heritage, cultural & creative industries, and culture for social inclusion. The key outputs are: a catalogue of 70 case studies; thematic study visits to 15 cities/regions, involving a total of 60-95 cities/regions; expert coaching for 10 cities regions.
