Date: 20 June 2022
The International Council for IYOG 2022 has successfully completed Round one of the IYOG 2022 Seed funding project. Thanks to our sponsors’ support, we supported over 40 activities across the world, promoting glass across all sectors through an amazing variety of events. We now launch Round 2 for projects later in 2022.
How will the Round 2 funds be allocated?
The International Council has limited funds to distribute to appropriate activities across all the regional organizations. Allocation will be based on the “Seed funding” principle and will only be awarded where they supplement other grants, income and in-kind costs, to amplify their value. Academic or industrial research projects, personal travel or funding for individual exhibitions, will not be funded. The aim is to ensure that as many, varied ideas as possible have the opportunity for financial support and a chance to blossom in 2022 with the potential for continuity into the future.
Who can make a submission?
Institutions, associations, not-for-profit and community groups, industry and individuals.
What is an activity?
The International Year of Glass 2022 has given all sectors of glass the opportunity to develop a range of activities supporting IYOG 2022 aspirations. An activity is anything that promotes glass positively. It can be across any sector and involve different disciplines. Engagement with the wider public and events with an educational flavour are encouraged. We hope to see applications for a diverse, novel and exciting range of activities. For information, the events page of the IYOG web site lists current plans. Activities must commence in 2022 but may complete in 2022 or 2023.
Measuring the success of the activity
With the range of activities anticipated, creating a single set of success criteria applicable across all activities is inappropriate. Nevertheless, your application should give a brief breakdown of anticipated costs and demonstrate clear and achievable outcomes as these will contribute to your success.
The window for submitting an application for seed funding is 1 st to 31st July. Successful applications will be confirmed by the end of August and funds dispersed by early September 2022. Applications received after the 31st of July will not be accepted.
To ensure each application is treated equally applications will only be accepted using the “Application for IYOG 2022 Activity seed funding Rd 2” pdf form attached. Funding will be in Euros so you will need to convert your local costs to euros for the application.
All boxes must be completed. Types of activities are in a drop-down menu for ease of identification. Select the one that best fits your activity. NOTE: Your total stated income and your anticipated outgoings (costs) must balance to be eligible for seed funding.
Applications will be assessed by the Executive Committee and decisions approved by the IYOG International Council. Funds will be transferred quickly (Goal within 2 weeks). Any local taxes or charges will be the responsibility of the applicant. Please return your completed application only to: email@example.com Receipts will be acknowledged.
