The representatives of the new 2014-2020 programming period

The ERDF heroes introduce themselves

The four ERDF heroes have been designed to serve as representatives of ERDF funding in the 2014-2020 period, each standing for one priority:

  • Emil gets things moving (urban development)
  • Felicia generates new ideas (research and innovation)
  • Ruth helps with finance (SMEs)
  • Eco helps combat climate change (cutting carbon emissions)

Together, the first letters of their names spell out “EFRE” – the German acronym for the ERDF.
