European Regional development fund for innovations in sailing
The ERDF aims to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the European Union by correcting imbalances between its regions. The ERDF focuses its investments on several key priority areas. ERDF action is designed to reduce economic, environmental and social problems in urban areas, with a special focus on sustainable urban development. One of the projects within this program is a stimulation fund for SME’s in the sailing industry. This project contributes to the economic growth of the companies and industries in the area of The Hague-Scheveningen.
