Background

European structural funding supports economic development across all EU countries. It promotes smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

How the UK will participate in EU funding streams, post-Brexit, or what would replace funding streams remains to be agreed. UK Government has proposed a UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) which will "respect the devolution settlement".

The purpose of this inquiry is to explore the experience of lead partners, delivery agents and beneficiaries. This will inform the design of any future funding of structural priorities in Scotland post-Brexit.

 

Submit Evidence

The Committee is inviting written responses to questions in the call for evidence. The deadline for responses is Thursday 25 April 2019. Please use the template provided by the Committee on their website at the link below.
