EU Funding Opportunities

EU Funding Opportunities

Tuesday 27th August Sinn Fein MEP Martina Anderson will be hosting an event in the Mellon Country Hotel. The event will focus on EU funding opportunities for the community and voluntary sector, SMEs and independent retail traders. Many within our communities are unaware of the many different streams of funding that are available for a myriad number of projects. All too often there is a perception that European funding begins and ends with the various PEACE streams but this is not the case and Martina has lined up a number of speakers who will give presentations on the various avenues groups can go down to find new areas of funding.

The speakers are:

  • Denis McMahon. A senior official from the offices of the First and Deputy First Minister.
  • Colette Fitzgerald. The head of the European Commission office in Belfast.
  • Richard Osterhus. Derry City Council European funding unit.

We would be delighted if you would be able to attend this event as we see it as an invaluable opportunity for your group to be informed of possible future strands of revenue and funding. The event will begin at 10.30am and will run to 12.30pm in the Mellon Country Hotel light refreshments will be served.
