ICOM is offering a Special Grants round in response to the armed conflict in Ukraine and its impacts on neighbouring countries. It is open to those countries which are supporting, or wanting to support, Ukrainian museums and museum professionals.

ICOM can cover up to 90% of the project total budget, providing 27 500 euros as maximum.

This call for projects is another step in ICOM’s efforts to support museums and museum professionals in Ukraine. This Special Grants round is a pilot effort. ICOM will be assessing its outcomes as a model for future emergency responses in other regions of the world.

To raise awareness about any emergency situations that could require ICOM’s attention and support, please contact the Heritage Protection Department.

  • Deadline for application: 14 October at midnight (CET)
  • Communication of results: by the end of November 2022

Please note that only National and International Committees, Regional Alliances and Affiliated Organisations can apply. If you are part of an ICOM member institution and are interested in the call, please contact your National or International Committees/Regional Alliances/Affiliated Organisation.

To answer your questions about this call for proposals, we propose a question and answer session on Tuesday 20 September at 2pm. To participate, please fill in the form below. The connection link will be sent to you the same day.
