European funded projects
Nottingham City Council participates in a wide range of European Union funded projects in the fields of training, job creation, economic development, cultural regeneration and transport.
This page features links to some of these projects to give a flavour of the benefits of European funding in Nottingham.
Building projects supported by the EU in recent years include Nottingham Contemporary (a modern art centre, pictured); New Art Exchange (an international arts centre); the rebuilt Old Market Square; Broadway Media Centre; and BioCity Nottingham.
Nottingham has also been represented in a number of European networks that exchange experience and good practice: Eurocities, Urbact and Agis are just some of these.
The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is providing more than £20 million to support enterprise and business growth activity in disadvantaged parts of the city between 2007 and 2013.
It is also supporting high growth and innovation sectors, particularly for science and technology, for which Nottingham organisations, including the two universities (The University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, have been awarded around £25 million since 2007.
A number of the projects receiving EU funding can be accessed via the links on this page. There is also a list of all ERDF funded projects at the Regional ERDF website under "List of Approved Beneficiaries".
