The Investment Plan for Europe aims to generate at least €315 billion of funding for projects in key strategic areas to get more people back to work and stimulating economic growth. The plan is already showing results, with around €50 billion of investment triggered during 2015, and dozens of Irish SMEs, start-up businesses set to benefit from the initiative.
The European Union recognises that there are plenty of great ideas that can create employment and generate growth but sourcing finance to get them off the ground can be a problem.
Nick Donnelly, Waterford Chamber CEO will close the proceedings summing up how this session can inform local businesspeople and concerned citizens and give them the tools to exploit available funding opportunities.
