eBook - A Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive Scotland in Europe

 The European Structural Funds eBook - A Smart, Sustainable & Inclusive Scotland in Europe is now available to download


The eBook is the 2014 Annual Communications Activity in accordance with EU Regulations 1303/2013 Annex XII. It includes an overview of the 2007-2013 Programmes, 20 case studies from both ESF & ERDF and an introduction to the 2014-2020 Programmes.

The 2007-2013 Programmes supported over 800 projects and although it is not possible to include them all in the eBook we hope that those who have been included provide an insight into the lives of individuals who took part in ESF projects and the positive impact it had on their lives.  The eBook also features several Scottish businesses which benefitted from taking part in ERDF funded projects.

The 2014-2020 section of the eBook looks at the differences between the 2007-2013 Programmes and the new 2014-2020 Programmes. It outlines the main aims and objectives for the next 7 years and the strategic plan to achieve these.
