ESF Projects

For European Social Fund projects only, nominations will be shortlisted in the following categories:

Category 1: Best individual achievement (aged 25+ years)

Category 2: Best individual achievement (aged 11-24 years)

We want to hear about the success stories of individuals who have seized opportunities presented by the European Social Fund, going above and beyond to develop new skills, secure a job or find a new career path.

For all projects (ESF and ERDF) 

Category 3: Best application of cross cutting themes into an EU project

We welcome applications that have successfully embedded the cross-cutting themes: sustainable development, equality and/ or gender mainstreaming and tackling poverty into their activities. 

For example, if your project has introduced activity which enhances the natural environment or applied measures which support a workplace in which everyone has the opportunity to succeed, we would like to hear from you.
