In November 2013 the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education and Culture published the results of a feasibility study carried out at the Directorate’s request by the Italian bureau Consulmarc Sviluppo s.r.l. The study can be downloaded here (http://eacea NULL.ec NULL.europa NULL.eu/llp/studies/study_suport_mobility_literary_translators NULL.php).
The proposed programme, for which the authors suggested the name ‘Mercurio’, is in three parts:
- Mobility Actions focused on translation activities and training (residencies, workshops, etc.);
- Partnership Actions focused on mobility for capacity-building and networking activities;
- Complementary Side Actions focused on the dissemination of information and on awareness campaigns
For a two-year pilot, the study recommends a budget of €4,799,000, of which the European Commission would provide €3,981,000 and the stakeholders €818,000. →
