An ESF-funded project in Estonia is bringing regional and local development experts together in a programme to promote entrepreneurship and employment.
Estonia has earmarked ESF funds to the tune of EUR 24.4 million to improve the employability of young jobseekers, as well as the long-term unemployed.
Estonia has earmarked EUR 4.9 million, partly funded by the ESF, for projects to set up nearly 1000 new childcare places and services for children up to the age of seven.
ESF funding for education, employment, healthcare and social services is part of a comprehensive investment in Estonia for growth and social inclusion.
On 20 June 2014, the Commission adopted the Partnership Agreement with Estonia, paving the way for almost €600 million (current prices) in European Social Fund (ESF) funding in the next seven years.
