European and other funding
There is currently no European Union funding available in Derby, however D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership has an allocation in the region of €250 million through the new EU Funding Programme 2014-20.
D2N2 is currently undertaking a wide ranging consultation to ensure that the planned use of the funding meets our growth ambitions, exploits our assets and addresses the challenges faced by our region.
A consultation document and survey has been prepared and D2N2 is seeking feedback that will be vital to help them develop the EU Strategy for Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
