Regional development & EU structural Funds

Spatial Policy

The economic and social impact of globalisation, liberalisation and increasing competition, coupled with the diminishing relevance of borders, devolution of powers to regional levels and rapid technological change is setting a new agenda for regional development.

European Structural Funds are aimed at reducing regional disparities in terms of income, wealth and opportunities: poorer regions receive most support, but all European regions are eligible for funding under the policy's various funds and programmes. How do Structural Funds work? Which projects are eligible for funding? How to go about applying for SF?
