Safeguard your business in Europe after Brexit: access to European funding

Through Flanders, British companies that are established in the region can access and benefit from European subsidies, funds and other types of financing programmes for corporate, government-backed and academic projects.

4 flagship EU financing programmes

  • The Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme offers almost EUR 80 billion between 2014 and 2020 to support companies and academic players.
  • The EU Health Programme earmarks EUR 449.4 million to involve private, public and academic players in implementing the EU’s health strategy.
  • More than half of EU funding is channelled through five European structural and investment funds (ESIFs). Managed by the European Commission and EU member states, these funds encourage projects that contribute to creating additional jobs as well as a sustainable, healthy European economy and environment.
  • The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) supports investments in innovation, research and other key domains that help strengthen economic and social cohesion within the EU.
