ERDF Local Opportunity Events March 2013 - Post Events Page

During March 2013, the ERDF Reach and Impact Project organised a series of workshops across Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire to support potential collaborative ERDF projects in the priority areas of each county that organisations were interested in taking forward through the ERDF challenge fund, or through the new proposed EU structural funds programme 2014/20.

Resources from the workshops are available to download below.

The ERDF Programme aims to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the UK by supporting regional economic development. ERDF in the East Midlands is managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). For further information visit
