RAWM has taken over from WMEN as being the definitive regional resource for third sector organisations seeking information and assistance with regard to European Funding in the West Midlands.
We will keep these sections updated with relevant information to help third sector organisations find the resources, support and agencies they need.
The resource sections include…
Europe 2020 Strategy
On 17 June 2010, the European Council adopted the Europe 2020 Strategy. It sets out a vision of Europe’s social market economy for the 21st century by putting forward three mutually reinforcing priorities – Smart Growth, Sustainable Growth and Inclusive Growth. The Europe 2020 Strategy section explains what the Strategy is all about and highlights the role EU Structural and Transnational funding programmes play in promoting social inclusion, in particular through the reduction in poverty. You can also download conference material in this section.
Addressing environmental sustainability is an important part of best practice; however it is often overlooked by organisations. The Environmental Sustainability section contains information on what is required from European Funded projects (both ESF and ERDF) and provides some practical tips on how to address environmental sustainability and promote sustainable development in your organisation. You can also download workshop presentations in this section.
