2014-20 European Regional Development Fund Programme

The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is one of the European Union’s Structural Funds which tackles regional disparities across Europe. ERDF helps to create economic development and growth; it gives support to businesses, encourages new ideas and supports regeneration.

For the 2014-2020 Programme, The London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP) is responsible for the strategic oversight of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) on behalf of the Government. The LEAP has been notionally allocated €748 million of funding European Social Fund (ESF) and ERDF to create jobs and support business growth in London. 

You can find out the latest information and guidance on ESF and ERDF programmes on GOV.UK.

The 2014-20 ESIF Strategy for London sets out four key areas for investment against the LEAP’s four Jobs and Growth Plan priorities:

  • skills and employment
  • SME competitiveness
  • science and technology
  • infrastructure

You can find out more about the current programmes on the LEAP website.
