Attendees at a Dublin seminar were told today that the European Commission is proposing to invest €1.2 billion in Cohesion Funding in Ireland over the period 2021 to 2027. €640 million is being proposed under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) while €579 million is being proposed under the European Social Fund (ESF).
Today's event marked the start of the dialogue between Ireland and the Commission services concerning the programming of the future Cohesion Policy funds (ERDF and ESF).

It includes stories from every county and across many sectors, including agriculture, culture, education, business, environment, health and consumer protection.
The exhibition is on a nationwide tour until July 2019, following its successful launch in Leinster House in 2018.
