Devon County Council is currently participating in 12 EU-funded projects with a total EU investment of just under £7million.
Unlocking our Coastal Heritage - A partnership led by the South West Coast Path Team to conserve, enhance and interpret 30 sites along the South West Coast Path National Trail. It aims to improve the quality of the visitor experience and increase the economic benefits to the associated tourism industry. The project has been awarded £2,100,000 from the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) which is funded 50/50 by the EU and Defra.
Channel Arc Manche Integrated Strategy (CAMIS) - the project aims to draft and implement an integrated maritime policy in the Channel area including maritime governance, cluster development and maritime transport. The project brings together 19 British and French partners, including a range of local authorities and universities. Devon's share of EU funds for CAMIS is £148,072 which comes from the EU Co-operation (Manche) Programme.
Making it Local - Devon County Council hosts the Blackdown Hills & East Devon 'Making it Local' programme which has RDPE funds of £2.4m over 5 years to encourage the development of the local area through support for rural business and communities.
The Devon County Council European team can provide advice on sources of European funding for your project and can also liaise with the South West European Partnership for help with finding international partners.
