GLE hosts event on the future of EU funding for London
Monday 9th July 2012
As the current EU budgetary period draws to a close in 2013, negotiations are taking place in Brussels to determine the framework for spending over the next seven years.
The Commission has published a number of communications on how the major funding programmes will operate between 2014 and 2020, and organisations across Europe are now considering how best to maximise the opportunities that these funds present.
GLE has an excellent track record of advising London boroughs on EU policy and funding, working closely with officers to explore grant options, develop proposals and complete the application process.
On Wednesday July 11th, GLE hosted an event covering the latest developments in EU funding to help London boroughs understand how they can support future projects in their local area. The event started with a presentation from Dr Sue Baxter, who provided details on the latest negotiations for Londonís allocation of Structural Funds between 2014 and 2020.
As the Deputy Director for EU Programmes at BIS, she is closely involved with determining how ESF and ERDF funding will be managed and invested in the coming years.
GLE consultants presented information on the upcoming changes to the other major EU funds, which support a wide range of projects around employment, social affairs, environment, energy and regional development.
This event featured an important update on the London Councils European Service, through which boroughs can currently access support on EU funding.
