REGISTER NOW FOR OUR FREE ERDF INFO EVENT ON 19TH JULY IN EXETER


New ERDF funding opportunities for the Heart of the South West are expected to be launched on or around 30th June. In support of these ERDF calls for project proposals, the Heart of the South West LEP is holding a free 'ERDF Info Event' from 13.30 to 16.00 (registration and refreshments from 13.00) on Wednesday 19th July in Exeter. The event aims to help prospective applicants understand the latest funding opportunities and what is needed for a successful ERDF application. The event will feature speakers from the Department of Communities and Local Government who manage the ERDF programme.


The session will particularly focus on the following anticipated upcoming ERDF calls for proposals:


Innovation £3.28 million ERDF (£3,000,000 for the transition area of Devon, Plymouth and Torbay and £280,000 for the more developed area of Somerset) for capital and/or revenue proposals which lead to improved levels of innovation within enterprises in the Heart of the South West. Proposals must align with the ERDF Operational Programme and the Heart of the South West ESIF Strategy and should complement, rather than duplicate, existing innovation activity in the Heart of the South West.

SME Support - £3.5 million ERDF (£3,000,000 for the transition area of Devon, Plymouth and Torbay and £500,000 for the more developed area of Somerset) for SME support proposals that improve the competitiveness of SMEs by increasing growth capacity and capability and/or by promoting entrepreneurship. The call is expected to be open to capital and revenue applications, with capital projects required to demonstrate that effective business support is in place. Proposals must align with the ERDF Operational Programme and the Heart of the South West ESIF Strategy and should complement, rather than duplicate, existing SME support activity in the Heart of the South West.


Please note that all ERDF call details above are, at this stage, provisional and may be subject to change. Calls will be published here on or around 30th June 2017.


As part of the registraton process for the event, you will be asked to chose which of two breakout sessions you would like to attend based on the anticipated upcoming ERDF call themes - innovation and SME support.
