In 2014 Create as lead partner, together with Tate Liverpool, Live Art Development Agency, m-cult, hablarenarte, Agora, Kunsthalle Osnabrück and Ludwig Múzeum, made a successful bid to Creative Europe. The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) established an eight partner network across Ireland, the UK, Finland, Spain, Germany and Hungary. This ambitious proposal to enhance professional opportunities and training for collaborative artists received excellent feedback results from the Creative Europe Culture Sub-Programme Evaluation Committee. At the time, Create was the first Irish arts organisation to lead a successful consortium bid and the CAPP project also represented the largest Creative Europe award achieved by an Irish arts organisation. In 2016, Heart of Glass in the UK joined as the ninth partner.
CAPP has appointed artist and researcher Dr Susanne Bosch to accommodate the CAPP research. Throughout the duration of the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme, the core activities – workshops, residencies and commissions as well as meetings and staging posts – were accompanied through a parallel research process.
