Launch of New Scottish EU Funding Portal

At last – one single, go-to source of information on EU funding programmes and projects!

The Scottish EU funding Portal is a new free on-line resource for organisations and businesses interested in EU funding and transnational project collaboration.  It has been developed in response to demand from Scottish stakeholders to establish a single source of information on EU funding programmes for which Scotland is eligible. 

With increased emphasis on SME participation in EU programmes in the 2014-20 programming period, on supporting the whole innovation chain from research to getting good ideas to market, and the more pronounced presence of financial instruments in the 2014-2020 programming period, the Portal will be a useful tool to help businesses and stakeholders access this funding. 

The EU Funding Portal provides information to registered users about opportunities in the EU Programmes and guides you to contacts and organisations which can support you with the development of an EU project.  The Partner Search area will help users find partners to work with on new EU projects as well as a resource to explore the types of EU projects Scottish organisations are currently, or have been involved in, delivering. The user customisation facility will enable users to request bespoke information notifications. The Blog feature provides all registered users with a space to share news, publications and details of events which users think will be of interest to a wider audience.

The aim of the Portal is to improve and broaden knowledge of EU programmes leading to a greater variety and uptake of EU funds; increased regional, national and transnational project collaboration and knowledge exchange; and a higher profile in Europe for Scottish organisations, institutions and businesses and their areas of expertise.
