Programmes

European Structural Funds provide EU Member States and regions with assistance to overcome structural deficiencies and to enable them to strengthen competitiveness and increase employment. The Scottish Government is the Managing Authority for Structural Funds in Scotland and has overall responsibility for supervising the implementation; ongoing management; and effectiveness of the programmes. In the period from 2014-20, Scotland will focus the Structural Funds on achieving structural reforms which facilitate sustainable economic growth. As EU Funds are deployed alongside significantly greater national resources, efforts will focus on quite specific niche investments which would not otherwise take place, or not to the same scale and timeframes, without Structural Funds. Deliberate efforts to create alignment between all EU Funds deployed in Scotland should ensure that the funds act together to support growth and jobs.
