What is ERDF?
ERDF is the European Regional Development Fund which is the main EU Structural and Investment Fund used to support economic development in countries and regions across Europe. Together with the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Cohesion Fund, the ERDF accounts for over one third of the EU budget.
