NEWS: The Launch of Access Europe

December 2, 2020

On 25 November, The Wheel officially launched Access Europe, a new support and capacity-building programme to help Irish civil society organisations access EU funding. The three-year project is being funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs.  

This launch featured Minister of State for European Affairs, Thomas Byrne TD, as our special guest and included a “spotlight session” on the social economy with expert speakers from Ireland and Europe. You can watch it back here if you missed it.

Membership of the Access Europe programme is free and provides:  

  • updates on EU funding calls and opportunities
  • free training and information events
  • one-to-one support for applications
  • networking with potential partners.

With the EU budget for the next multiannual financial framework finally agreed upon this week, a new batch of EU programmes and funding opportunities will be released soon. The Wheel’s Access Europe team will be researching programmes as they are released and filtering down relevant and accessible information to civil society and supporting them to engage.

Don’t miss out, sign up for free to Access Europe today and keep informed.
