WHAT IS ACCESS EUROPE?
Access Europe is a three-year programme, led by The Wheel and funded by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, to provide a support and capacity-building programme for Irish civil society organisations to better access EU funds and engage in EU policy.
Raise awareness of the value of strategic involvement in EU programmes and share information on EU funding opportunities.
Build the capacity of Irish civil society organisations to apply for and win funding from EU programmes.
Support the development of partnerships between Irish civil society organisations and potential national and European partners, as well as national agencies, contact points and other institutions that promote participation in EU programmes and relevant social economy and civil society-related policymaking.
