The Technical Assistance Partnership, supported by the Humber LEP, is running a number of free events designed to assist organisations to bid for funding that will be made available through the Humber European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) programme.

The following workshops are taking place on 26 May 2016 at the Ropewalk, Maltkin Road, Barton-upon-Humber.

Humber ESF Calls Launch – 9.30am
It is expected that two calls for ESF funding will be launched for the Humber LEP area under Priority Axis 2.1 (Enhancing Equal Access to Lifelong Learning) in late May 2016. The minimum amount of ESF that can be applied for will be £50,000 and applicants must provide match funding of at least 40%. The event will cover:

• An update on the ESIF programme in the Humber LEP area
• Details of current and potential future calls, e.g. what sort of activity is required
• Opportunities for networking/identifying potential project partners
• Overview of the application process
• Details on the support that is available for applicants
• Future opportunities through ESF
• Q&A on ESF funding

This morning event will open for registration at 9.30 am when refreshments will be served and the event will close with a buffet lunch. There is parking available at the venue.
