European Structural and Investment Funds

Five main Funds work together to support economic development across all EU countries, in line with the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy:

Every EU region may benefit from the ERDF and ESF. However, only the less developed regions may receive support from the Cohesion Fund.

European Union Solidarity Fund

The European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) provides assistance in case of major natural disasters.

Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance

Support for EU candidate and potential candidate countries is available via the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA).
