European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF)
The detailed management of programmes which receive support from the Structural Funds is the responsibility of the Member States. For every programme, the Member States designate a managing authority (at national, regional or another level) which will inform potential beneficiaries, select the projects and generally monitor implementation. EIP on AHA stakeholders who are interested in mobilising Structural Funds for the deployment of innovative AHA services may contact their corresponding Managing Authorities for more information on available opportunities.
