Opportunity type : Calls for Proposals
Share on

This call for applications is open to literary translators, aged 18+, active in the field of literature, of all educational qualifications and levels of experience, legally residing in a Creative Europe country, (individuals or groups up to 5 people).

i-Portunus provides financial support to partially fund the cost of travel (transport, accommodation etc.) to another (or several) Creative Europe country(/ies).

The duration of the mobility must be between 7 and 60 days and must take place before 30 November 2021.

The travel can be continuous or segmented:

  • a continuous mobility means that you have one round-trip travel or one multi-destination trip.
  • a segmented mobility means that you will travel several times to one or several destinations. Each trip must last a minimum of five days, and the total number of days still has to be between 7 and 60 days.

The main objective of your mobility is preferably one of the following:

  • international collaboration: for example, with an author in the framework of a literary translation.
  • production oriented residencies: for example, the result of your mobility is the immersion in a specific ‘source language context’, in the framework of a literary translation.
  • professional development: for example, you will take part in network meetings, showcases, workshops, master classes and other types of training outside of formal education.
