EU Funding

EU Funding is a sensible alternative to traditional methods of financing. It promotes innovation and sustainable development, improves chances for education and regional growth; and creates incentives for new employment.

EU regulations and directives need to be carefully observed

The national and regional administration of EU Funding is subject to uniform EU-wide regulations. These regulations implementation can prove especially challenging in terms how they are applied and how funding can be taken up more efficiently. It is our aim to simplify these regulations and their practical application. The European Academy for Taxes, Economy & Law supports administrative authorities throughout Europe in implementing these rules and regulations so that applicants for funding from all parts of Europe make progress and benefit from the Academy’s special training courses.

Extend your expertise by participating in the various events held by the European Academy for Taxes, Economics & Law in this area.
