Rakennerahastot.fi website updated with information on the new programming period
The revised rakennerahastot.fi website compiles information on the new programming period of the EU’s regional and structural policy. The website’s functions and structure have been improved and its visual image corresponds with that of the programming period.
“The EU’s new programming period is about to begin, and the new website supports this work. The online service is intended for all who are involved in or interested in EU regional and structural policy. The website contains a great deal of information, including instructions on applying for aid as well as the aid recipients and results of projects,” says Johanna Osenius, Director for Regional Development at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment.
The website’s ‘Activities in regions’ section contains region-specific information on current issues related to the programming period, the regional priorities of the development measures to be funded and the application of funding.
The Innovation and Skills in Finland 2021−2027, the EU’s regional and structural policy programme, aims to renew the regional economic structure, improve employment and skills, and increase inclusion. The funding comes from three complementary funds: the European Social Fund (ESF+), the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Just Transition Fund (JTF).
Initially, the website will be available in Finnish and Swedish. The English-language version will be published later in spring 2022.
