What do we do?

Our members have extensive experience in the field of European Structural Funds, supporting organisations accessing the funds, providing strategic input in the development of programmes, raising awareness of project opportunities and disseminating good practice.

The EFN advisory group exchanges information on issues related to the implementation of the programme at sub-national level and identifies matters to be raised at national level at the ESF Programme Monitoring Committee.

It is a vital connection between the national and local dimensions of ESF delivery and helping sustaining a bottom-up approach to influencing policy.
