EU Funding Programme

European Regional Development Fund

Infrastructural Development

ERDF action is designed to reduce economic, environmental and social problems in urban areas, with a special focus on sustainable urban development. It focuses its investment on several key priority areas – Innovation and research; the digital agenda; support for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs); and the low-carbon economy.

Together with the Cohesion Fund (CF), the ERDF will finance Malta’s Operational Programme I: ‘Fostering a competitive and sustainable economy to meet our challenges’. This programme aims to strengthen the productivity of enterprises, boost research and innovation, enable the shift towards a more low-carbon and environmentally-friendly society, foster health and social development and increase education attainment in line with Malta’s ambition to contribute towards the Europe 2020 targets for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

ERDF will also address the needs, imbalances and bottlenecks which have been identified in the relevant Country Specific Recommendations, Malta’s National Reform Programme, the SWOT analysis portrayed in the Partnership Agreement with the European Commission, as well as other pertinent national strategies.

The Managing Authority responsible for the above mentioned funds is the Planning and Priorities Coordination Division (PPCD).

            [post_content] => This Grant Scheme aims at the internationalisation of the Undertaking by introducing their products/services to new markets and by strengthening their international market presence.

Participation in International Business Promotion Fairs remains an important instrument in targeting markets for SME internationalisation, and provides SMEs an opportunity to start building a network of business connections and to overcome barriers to enter the targeted foreign market. Moreover, participation in business promotion fairs provides a source of significant information for SMEs of preferred policies and actions when operating in the international business field.

Hence this scheme is supporting active participation in International Business Promotion Fairs held outside the territory of the Republic of Malta where active participation means having a stand and exhibiting products/services at the fair.

            [post_content] => This Grant Scheme aims to incentivise SMEs to adapt and become more resilient and address market challenges whilst offering timely support to nurture the right environment towards the potential future business growth of the enterprise. Diversification and innovation are key to the survival of enterprises as such timely realisation and intervention can avoid dire consequences leading to eventual closure or bankruptcy, and enables the enterprise turnaround.

This scheme intends on allowing investment in tangible and intangible assets related to the improved operations, market saturation, and the provision of new products or services. Actions eligible may be related to the diversification of the output of an existing establishment into products or services not previously produced, fundamental change in the overall production process, new economic activity, adoption of solutions that lead to the development of a significantly improved good or service, and the acquisition and integration into the business operation of solutions that are more advanced than current operations.
