The University has successfully participated in European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funded projects since early 1996, with their total value exceeding £80 million in terms of total project costs.
The current European Structural Funds Programmes for Wales 2007-2013 are administered by the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO). West Wales and the Valleys will receive around £1.3 billion over 7 years to support a new Convergence Programme. East Wales will qualify for a new Regional Competitiveness and Employment Programme, which in total will receive around £97M over 7 years. Wales will also continue to participate in a successor to the INTERREG programmes.
Please see current Structural Funds Project Portfolio to see details, including website links of funded projects, from current programme period 2007-2013.
Cardiff University is eligible to participate in all Programmes, provided that the project beneficiaries are in the respective Programme areas. Staff considering bidding for Structural Funds must consult with their Head of School and with RACDV at the earliest possible stage of proposal preparation.
