European Union – Launch of a guide to European funding by Harlem Désir (February 18, 2016)


Harlem Désir, Minister of State for European Affairs, launched the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development’s online guide to European funding.

This guide, which has been developed within the framework of a partnership with, the leading online portal providing information about European issues, is aimed at all those who have projects that could benefit from European funds. It provides a ready-to-use comprehensive overview of all European funding. It will therefore facilitate wider ownership of European policies by all citizens and economic stakeholders.

France will receive €26 billion from the European Structural Funds during the period 2014-2020. A large number of projects, notably investment projects, are also supported by common policies, notably the Horizon 2020 Program for Research and Innovation, the European Interconnection Mechanism for transport, energy and communication infrastructure and the ERASMUS youth mobility program.
