Europe can also help you set up an economic, environmental and/or social project for the Brussels inhabitants through the aid offered by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The ERDF

The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is the European Union's financial lever for successfully achieving its cohesion and regional development policy. In other words, the ERDF aims to reduce economic, social and territorial disparities between the 28 Member States of the European Union by co-financing projects designed to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth as defined in the "Europe 2020 Strategy". The ERDF Regulations define 7-year "programming periods" for conducting projects in different European regions, plus 2 or 3 years to finalise these projects if necessary.

The ERDF Management and Coordination Unit within the Brussels Regional Public Service

In 2007, the government appointed a brand new unit to manage and coordinate this European fund, which is designed to implement operational programmes and monitor them. The ERDF Unit, supervised by the Minister-President of the Brussels-Capital Region, acts as a facilitator and an interface between European institutions and regional and local actors, surrounding itself with the expertise of other regional administration services, regional partners, fund beneficiaries and counterparts from other Belgian and European regions.

 

The ERDF Unit coordinates and monitors the implementation of ERDF operational programmes:
