A beginner's guide to EU funding

The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Budget released “A beginner’s guide to EU funding”, which introduces the EU funding opportunities available in the period 2014-2020. This guide is the first step to read as it offers a comprehensive collection of basic facts and links.

The publication introduces beginners to the wide range of EU funding opportunities available. It offers basic guidance on the application procedures and tells you where to find more details. This guide contains the most recent information about the current EU programmes for the financial period 2014-20.

The guide targets six main categories of potential applicants: small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), non-governmental organisations (NGOs), young people, researchers, farmers and public bodies. However, it may also be a valuable source of information for applicants from other fields.
