These sessions have been arranged specifically to coincide with the anticipated launch of up to eight new European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and European Social Fund (ESF) calls this year, a number of which are due to be published by the end of this month, and are designed to ensure that applicants avoid the common weaknesses of many of the applications submitted to date in the current programmes.
The sessions will provide bespoke tailored support to organisations which wish to apply or which are in the process of applying for European funding. Up to one hour is available for each individual pre-booked advice session. A team of expert advisors from the L-CREATE Technical Assistance (TA) partnership will be on hand to answer your questions and to provide guidance, specific to your project, to help you to develop high quality, compliant outline and full applications for ERDF and ESF.
The sessions will run from 9.30am until 5pm and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis although priority will be given to organisations which are intending to respond to the next round of calls or those who are already developing full applications.
The deadline for registering for an appointment is 5pm on 27th April 2016.
Please note that places at the Surgery Sessions will be confirmed shortly after this deadline. If you are allocated a place, you will need to send information about your application/project in advance (by 4th May). Please be aware that any information you submit will be shared with TA partners in order to prepare for your session. In addition, when registering for an advice session, you will need to provide them with information about which call you are intending to respond to and any specific areas you wish to cover in the advice session.
