Applying for funding – Northern Finland


The allocation of funding is guided by the Innovation and Skills in Finland 2021−2027 programme, which includes measures of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) and the Just Transition Fund (JTF).

The operating region of the North Ostrobothnia Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment covers North Ostrobothnia, Lapland and Kainuu. In Central Ostrobothnia, funding is granted by the Central Finland Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment.

Regional councils grant ERDF funding and JTF (Just Transition Fund) funding in their regions.
