Access to European Structural and Investment Funds

European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) may be used in the defence sector to co-fund productive investment projects and support the modernisation of the defence supply chains.

EDA has proved it by supporting several pilot applications successfully awarded (see EDA’s ESIF success stories).

See the tutorial first, which briefly introduces the opportunities of the ESIF for defence-related organisations.

To access information and directly monitor ESIF calls for proposals, as well as contact relevant Authorities publishing them, just click on below links.
