European Funding

The EU provides funding for a broad range of projects and programmes covering various areas, from education, research, employment, regional development to the environment, humanitarian aid, agriculture, and the marine, among many others. Significant support is available to small and medium-sized businesses, non-governmental and civil society non-profit organisations, young people, researchers, farmers, and public bodies, to name a few.

European Structural & Investment Funds

The European Structural and Investment Funds support economic development across all of the European Union. These Funds make up over half of the European Union’s budget. The Funds work together to invest in education, research, and job creation to help create a sustainable and healthy economy across the whole of the country. They are also spent on protecting our environment, and on supporting rural and coastal communities.
