EuroClio Regranting Scheme
Pan-European Gathering: Call for Applications
In our diverse European society we cannot escape history when seeking to understand the present in our search for a common future. EuroClio and the Evens Foundation have been working together for a few years now aiming to open up spaces to challenge dominant national narratives and to engage with the complexity, multiplicity and transnationality of European history and history teaching. We believe this is a necessary first step that allows and supports educators and their students to discover common positions or overcome divisions while acknowledging existing differences. We believe that supporting transnational exchange and peer learning between history educators from the bottom-up, increases the probability that initiatives also answer educators’ real needs on the ground. At the same time we hope it will lead to more transnational cooperation between history educators and EuroClio’s member associations to enhance history education in Europe.
What are we looking for?
With the Pan-European Gathering call we are aiming to support EuroClio members in organising a pan-European event for representatives of history teaching associations. This event will offer an opportunity to discuss common challenges in history education, share information about the situation of history education in different countries and design joint strategies with history teachers associations from around Europe for example to support each other when needed.
The gathering should address at least one of the objectives of the EU operating grant that EuroClio is receiving. These are: 1) Building the capacity of national or regional organisations working in the field of European Remembrance. 2) Building and increasing the capacity of network partners to develop coherent and coordinated activities to make history education more multiperspective and/or transnational. 3) Expand the EuroClio’s reach, including new partners. 4) A measurable increase in the impact of the EuroClio’s activities in the field of European Remembrance.
We offer 1 grant of 52.000 euros. The grant covers up to 47.000 euros hard costs (which can be used for travel, stay, accommodation, translation, interpretation, printing and other costs where you get a receipt) and a 5.000 euros fee for the organisers. No co-financing is required.
What are the requirements?
- You need to be a EuroClio member association
- You need to team up with other associations and form a consortium
- To be eligible for the grant, the lead applicant should be an EU organisation, and the activities should take place in the EU. However, non-EU members can also participate in the scheme as partners.
- The event needs to take place for at least 2 full days.
- The budget needs to include the costs for participation (including travel, stay and accommodation) for at least 1 representative of each EuroClio Member Organisations from the EU.

- Time the event between 15 August – 30 November 2023.

How to Apply?
Please send the following documents to email@example.com before the deadline: June 28, 23:59 (CET).
- Motivation letter
- Support letters from other member associations
- Proposed idea and programme of the Pan-European Gathering (max. 2 pages)
Please let us know if you are considering applying with a consortium, so that we can share this information with member organisations who are interested to participate. This will enable them to get in touch and get an idea of the changes of success.
While preparing your idea and programme you can consider these questions as a guidance:
- What would be the main added value of such a gathering?
- What are the common challenges that history teachers face across Europe or the wider world? Which of these challenges could be transformed into an activity or theme?
- Can you think of potential activities/brainstorming sessions that would take place during a pan-European gathering?
- How would you involve association members coming from non-EU countries in the organisation and conduct of a pan-European gathering?
- What kind of activities you are currently involved in that could be scaled up into a pan-European event? (i.e. gathering happening on a national level)
