The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) supports research and innovation, the creation of a low carbon economy and aims to strengthen economic and social cohesion.

The six priority areas are:

  • Research & innovation
  • ICT
  • SME competitiveness
  • Low carbon
  • Climate change
  • Environment

This ERDF focuses on larger, more strategic schemes which are well co-ordinated and which give maximum impact against specific themes. However, smaller projects and peripherally linked themes may also qualify for funding through collaborative value added partnerships.

Calls for activity and relevant guidance against the six themes are announced on our latest news pages as well as on these EU Funding pages.

Please note that as this is a national programme, all project application forms need to be submitted to the national programme using the following e-mail: EM.ERDFENQUIRIES@communities.gsi.gov.uk
