An Introduction to European Funding
As competition for UK funding becomes fiercer, many - who have until now been able to manage without - are now considering European funding as a viable alternative. This course offers an introduction to the funding available directly from the European Commission. (Note, it does NOT cover structural funds managed by the UK government such as ERDF or ESF.)
"An Introduction to European Funding" is an ideal initiation for anyone who is new to the workings of the EC and who is considering applying for the first time for funding direct from Europe.
Training investment: An introductory rate of £195 plus VAT per person, which includes lunch and light refreshments during the day and covers the costs of course material.

"I found a lot of the information useful for ongoing applications. What I enjoyed most about the course was our participation was sought and we were able to relate the exercises to our own projects. Excellent."
"Informal and interactive and a potentially dry subject was made interesting."
