Through its projects and initiatives, Kopin seeks to reach various members of society.


The group from Italy represents various Voluntary Sector organisations, including NGOs who work with asylum seekers and migrants.


During a visit to MEUSAC this morning, MEUSAC representatives from both the EU Policy & Legislation and EU Funding teams gave an in-depth explanation of MEUSAC’s role and how MEUSAC assists NGOs and local councils access EU funding opportunities.


Since 2008 to date, MEUSAC helped NGOs and local council benefit from over €34 million in EU funds for various projects. MEUSAC has also played a vital role in communicating new proposed policy and legislations to stakeholders, including EU-related information to the public.
