Service Description

As an archive, library, university or other institution that preserves written cultural assets, you can apply for funding for model projects under certain conditions.

The Coordination Office for the Preservation of Written Cultural Heritage (KEK) supports model projects for the sustainable preservation of written cultural heritage in archives and libraries with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) and the Cultural Foundation of the Federal States (KSL).

They can decide for themselves whether they want to gain theoretical or practical experience as part of the pilot project.

You can receive funding of up to EUR 30,000 per year if

  • Your project has a model character.
  • Your project has a high public profile or is innovative.
  • Your project content can be assigned to one of the following categories:
    • Archive holdings,
    • library holdings,
    • expertise,
    • research,
    • emergency preparedness or
    • public relations work.
  • Your measure secures objects in archives and libraries,
    • which are unique and
    • have a unique character,
    • which goes hand in hand with the scientific, cultural or historical significance of the holdings.

You will not receive funding for

  • Projects that you have already started or completed.
  • Projects that you are unable to finance with a substantial contribution of your own or with third-party funding.
  • Projects for the conservation of graphic artworks, paintings and other works of fine art.

The decision to fund your project will be based on the following criteria:

  • Exemplary nature
  • Public impact
  • innovation

Eligible costs are

  • all costs incurred in the implementation of the project,
  • expenditure for external services,
  • ancillary costs such as
    • expenses for working materials and consumables or
    • public relations work,

that can be directly allocated to the project.

Costs that are not eligible for funding are

  • Expenses for permanent staff and project-related personnel,
  • investments,
  • expenditure for permanent exhibitions or measures to be carried out regularly,
  • expenditure for necessary structural and technical measures,
  • the procurement of work equipment or
  • expenditure for measures to maintain the operational functionality of your institution, such as magazine cleaning.

After approval, you can request the funding for the costs incurred from the CEC in accordance with the details in the grant notification. The funds will then be paid out to you during the project period so that the costs incurred can be paid directly from the funding.

You submit your funding application to the Coordination Office for the Preservation of Written Cultural Heritage (KEK).
