The portal provides comprehensive coverage of all available funding opportunities, including European Union, national Government programmes, regional schemes and local initiatives, and is kept fully up to date by an in-house research team.
It also includes a number of proactive features that offer users additional value. They can set up automatic email alerts so they are first to know when relevant new or updated funds are added, as well as signing up to weekly newsletters packed with the latest funding announcements.
