Event Description

This event, which was geared towards local community & voluntary groups who need to increase their funding base, took place at  7pm on Tuesday 15th November in Central Library, Oliver Plunkett Road, Letterkenny.

Members of The Wheel carried out a survey in April 2015 which found that only 17% had experience of applying for EU funding.  Many cited the complicated nature of the application process and the need to have matched funding as real barriers to entry. This workshop was geared towards rectifying this situation & giving information on the following: the overall EU financial and policy background for 2015-2020; funding opportunities per EU Programme (Horizon2020, ESF, Interreg, Creative Europe); the Europe for Citizens Programme; and importantly, how to assess your potential to access EU funding.

This event was free of change and attendees found the information very useful. The audience was small at 15 but weather on the night was very bad.
