Training for companies on how to apply for EU Funds

We have come across an interesting opportunity to get free consultancy and training in how to apply for EU Structural Funds. We’ve checked it out and can assure you there are no catches or hidden costs.  It comes from a Phare project at the Ministry of Finance which needs to help companies apply for these funds.

There will be two “INFO DAYS” held on the 9th and 11th of December and this would be a good opportunity to find out more.  If you’re interested you should follow the link below and fill in the application form.

The Structural Fund in question is called Increasing Economic Competitiveness and is designed to help Romanian companies become more competitive in the EU.  They do this by reimbursing companies with about 50% of agreed investments in productive or IT equipment, up to 5,560,000 RON, as well as associated costs such as dedicated buildings and training.

The fund is aimed at medium and large enterprises which are in profit and are planning to make investments in manufacturing (priority axis 1) or IT equipment (axis 2) or renewable energy and energy efficiency (axis 4).  Any sized company can apply for funds for IT equipment.  If you look on this website — http://amposcce.minind.ro/ — and see the left hand menu you can find out more about each axis.

The application process for the free consultancy and training (and INFO DAYS) is rather simple. All you need to do is log onto this website — http://www.ieca.ro/info.html — and fill in the questionnaire.  You can also see the training schedule there, and I know they’re planning some activities in December.  We spoke to one of the consultants working on this project and he said they’re looking for companies which have a well developed project idea, which they want to help develop into a complete SF application.

  1. Hi Anca,

    Is there any new information about PHARE and other EU funds available for sustainable development, renewable energy and other similar projects?

    Will the RoGBC hold any informational or instructional workshops about these funds?

    Thank you!

  2. Hi,

    There will be info available soon – we are planning to make a report on available financing sources. We did not plan yet any instructional workshops but we inform our members whenever we found out about workshops that are organized by other institutions/organizations and we think that it might be in our member’s interest.

    Anca
