On behalf of the Black Country Technical Assistance (BCTA) team we would like to invite you and your members and networks to a series of workshops in the Black Country, providing information on available ERDF funding. Each of the five workshops will include refreshments, lunch and time to network with fellow delegates. The workshops are as follows:
Black Country Growth Hub – 19/11/18
The Black Country Growth Hub will host two workshops, a morning session focusing on Priorities 1 and 2, Research & Innovation and Enhancing ICT. This covers both an improvement of access to, and quality of information computer technology. An afternoon session focuses on Priority 3, Enhancing the competitiveness of SMEs. Lunch will be available for all delegates.
Himley Hall – 20/11/18
Himley Hall will also host two workshops. The morning session will look at Priority 4, Low Carbon which will provide a smooth transition to the afternoon workshop which focuses on Priority 6, Environment and Resource Efficiency. Lunch is available for all delegates.
Each of the workshops will provide an introduction to current ERDF opportunities as well as case studies of projects that have been successful in securing support from the ERDF programme. Funding allocations for each priority area will be covered as well as the key eligibility criteria and application routes. Workshops will also include an overview of regional, national and EU policy that shapes the ERDF programme.
As application deadlines for this funding close on 23 November, these workshops will provide you with information and support to submit your application.
If you’re interested in attending one or more of these workshops, please get in touch with the Black Country Technical Assistance team.
