Call For Applications! S-EEE programme

10 January 2024

The Sustainable EEEMERGING (S-EEE) programme aims to bolster 10 promising Early Music ensembles throughout 2024 and 2025, recognising them as key partners to ensure a diverse and high quality artistic scene across Europe. 

The S-EEE programme will contribute to strengthening the ensembles and their artistic projects, while providing them entrepreneurial and sustainability skills to develop a career in the international market with sustainability in mind. S-EEE understands sustainability in all its plural dimensions – social, economical, cultural as well as ecological.

Interested Early Music ensembles are invited to apply before 11 February 2024 through the following registration form.


Launched in 2014, EEEMERGING was born out of a twofold understanding: firstly, Early Music embraces a European dimension in repertory, education and performance and therefore needs to be promoted cooperatively at the European level. Secondly, small ensembles, both attractive to concert programmers and agile in terms of repertory, are the ideal vehicles for transmitting this music that remains rooted in our contemporary, ever-evolving, world. 

Taking into account the achievements of the EEEMERGING and EEEMERGING+ programmes, Sustainable-EEEMERGING (2024-2027) moves forward to keep pace with the changing environment, making sustainability one of the core values of the project, while aiming to have an impact on the Early Music ecosystem. For instance, the project will take action to ensure the soundness of professional careers for artists with an historically informed approach, but also to increase the opportunities for the dissemination and reception of Early Music repertoires across Europe by adopting more sustainable practices from an environmental, economic and social point of view. 

The project will be carried out through a series of actions defined and implemented by a consortium of 13 organisations and a circle of over 20 partners (promoters, networks, alumni), in cooperation with a community of musicians who have been supported by the programme over the last 10 years.
