The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership Technical Assistance website is an information source for partners and organisations with an interest in European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF).  The site contains information on how to apply for and successfully run an ESIF-funded project and about projects already being delivered in the D2N2 area.

The purpose of ESIF is to support businesses, communities and individuals across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. 

The aim of this website is to encourage potential partners and providers to understand the nature, range and scope of ESIF opportunities; allowing them to be better informed and to contribute to their delivery as appropriate.

The D2N2 technical assistance programme is part of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.  For more information on the work of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, please visit the D2N2 LEP website.

Tell us about your BIG IDEAS for skills, jobs and growth!
