EU Structural and Investment Funds Strategy for Lancashire Final – 31-01-14 LEP Board
The European Structural Investment Framework outlines how funds will be used to increase productivity levels for key economic sectors, promote sustainable employment growth and tackle the barriers to employment for Lancashire’s most disadvantaged communities and increase capacity to unlock the economic potential of Lancashire’s businesses and residents.
Liz Tapner, Chief Executive of Selnet Ltd and a ONE Lancashire Director along with consultations from the wider sector has represented the Social Enterprise and Third Sector and this is where the process is at to date.
Please find attached the copy of the ESIF 31st January 2014 Submission, This document has gone to the National Growth Board and comments and feedback will be issued. Therefore the document is likely to change between now and possible national endorsement/approval in May 2014.
Once we have feedback and have been given more detail on the processes for selecting projects, etc we will arrange a further stakeholder event to discuss the implementation of the ESIF (in the context of the ERDF/ESF/EAFRD national Operational programmes).
