First call for projects: an overwhelming response!

Thursday 18 June 2015

The first call for projects proved extremely popular with 44 Phase 1 applications received for a total of 154 million euros of ERDF (representing 73.5% of the Programme ERDF budget).

  • 21 proposals were submitted under Priority axis 3 focussing on the attractiveness of the programme area, with a value of over 80 million euros of ERDF. 
  • 15 proposals were submitted under Priority axis 1, focussing on innovation with a value of almost 40 million euros of ERDF. 
  • 8 proposals were submitted under Priority axis 2, focussing on low carbon technologies, with a value of almost 33 million euros of ERDF. 

The Joint Secretariat appraisal team is involved in preparing these applications to facilitate the decision making by the member states during the selection sub-committees.
