EU Programmes and EU co-funded Projects

Finding the way through the administrative jungle – making use of European programs

The EU structural fund programmes are designed to stimulate and promote the development of regions. Implementing these programmes requires considerable know-how. And making successful use of these funding opportunities through appropriate projects demands cutting-edge knowledge and expertise. This is particularly important for programmes promoting co-operation (ETC, formerly INTERREG) which have specific requirements.

On one hand we support authorities at regional, national and transnational level in preparing and implementing their programmes. On the other hand we support local actors in making effective use of EU-programmes by preparing successful applications and realizing these projects afterwards. We particularly support in

  • identifying appropriate funding opportunities for project ideas.
  • turning ideas into viable projects eligible for EU co-funding.
  • implementing projects in a professional manner and in line with respective requirements.
  • designing appropriate management structures and procedures.
