INTRODUCTION

In addition to the EU funds that are administered via national and regional authorities (CAP expenditure and Structural Funds), the European Commission also pays direct grants to beneficiaries in pursuance of other common policies in such fields as research and development, education, training, the environment, consumer protection, and information.

Outlined above are a number of these programme and initiatives which are of relevance to Irish sub-national authorities.

The IRO Funding Monitor is continuously being up-dated – certain sections may therefore be unavailable at present.
