Programmes versus Agencies
Both Funding Programmes and Agencies are included in our overview. But what's the difference between both?
The EU makes funding available in different forms, including grants, loans and guarantees…
Find here all relevant information which will allow you to apply to the different types of funding through the respective funding programmes. Whether you are a public or private organisation, an NGO, a local authority, a network… your project can be eligible to European Funds.
EU funding can be managed jointly by the European Commission (EC) and national authorities, directly by the European Commission or indirectly by other authorities inside or outside the EU, depending on the nature of the funding concerned.
Direct management The EC manages the budget of projects carried out by its departments, at its headquarters, in the EU delegations or through EU executive agencies. This includes awarding grants, transferring funds, monitoring activities, selecting contractors, etc.
Indirect management Some funding programmes are implemented by national authorities either inside or outside the EU, international organisations, or development agencies of EU countries.
