The main access to funding for the private sector is through aid schemes financed under both the European Regional Development Fund and the European Social Fund. The aid schemes financed under ERDF target a wide range of areas which aim to increase enterprises’ competitiveness in both a local and international context, while the aid schemes financed under ESF focus primarily on job creation and employability of the local workforce.
The 2021-2027 programming period supports an array of funding programmes based on policies that European Union members are invited to implement. Malta will launch the first calls during quarters 1 of 2023. These funding programmes provide financial support to public and private organisations that operate within different fields such as digitization, innovation, economy, employment, business, infrastructure, tourism and many more.
In preparation for this, the session explores the opportunities but also the challenges for the private sectors highlighting the lessons learnt in the previous programming period and possible areas for improvement.

Topics on the agenda

Why is the session of relevance to our members?

The aim is to provide adequate advice and assistance to the private sector on opportunities for funding as well as necessary requirements to have in place in order to optimise the investments.
