EU Funding

The Scottish Government has worked with Scotland Europa, the East of Scotland European Consortium, and the West of Scotland European Forum to jointly develop the Scottish EU Funding Portal. It will become a one stop shop for information on the EU funds currently available to Scotland; providing information on those projects currently running, and those already completed, which involve Scottish partners. It will also provide information on the project partners themselves.

The Portal will provide users with a private project collaboration space where organisations registered on the portal can be invited to collaborate on project development. It will feature a number of project management tools and a central online space to store and collaborate on documents.

The European Structural Funds division of the Scottish Government has published a new ebook to promote and celebrate the achievements of the 2007-2013 programme, and to increase awareness and understanding of the new 2014-2020 scheme.

The document, which is available to download, highlights the positive impact European funding has on Scottish people, communities and Scotland’s economy. It also outlines the strategic aims and objectives for the 2014-2020 programme.
