EU Funding

Many small businesses directly or indirectly benefit from EU funding. The UK Government has provided a guarantee of funding for all of the below:

  • The full 2014 - 20 Multiannual Framework (MFF) allocation for Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) and European Regional and Development Funds (ERDF). New bids for funding under the ERDF, ESF (European Social Fund) and European Territorial Co-operation Projects, post exit day will be guaranteed by the Government until the programme closes at the end of the MFF.
  • The payment of awards where UK organisations successfully bid directly to the European Commission (e.g. through projects such as Horizon 2020) on a competitive basis until the end of 2020.
  • The payment of awards for successful bids where the UK organisations are able to participate as a third country in competitive grant programmes from exit day until the end of the programme. This includes the SME instrument in Horizon 2020.
