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).

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

If you are instead interested in accessing the EU COSME Programme (Competitiveness of SMEs) go to the EDA’s “COSME web-platform”.
