EGF Managing Authority

EGF LogoWho we are

The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) Managing Authority is responsible for, managing and overseeing the delivery of programmes co-financed by the EGF in Ireland.

Operational from 2007, the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) assists EU Member States to provide active labour market supports to workers made redundant (or self-employed people whose activity ceases) as a result of major structural changes in world trade due to globalisation or global financial and economic crisis.

What we do

  • Submit applications for support from the EGF in consultation with stakeholders including redundant worker representatives, relevant Government departments, state agencies
  • Facilitate the delivery of services and programmes co-financed by the EGF
  • Ensure that sound systems of management and financial control are established and comply with national and EU legislation
  • Provide information and advice on relevant EGF matters
  • Prepare and submit final reports on EGF co-financed programmes to the European Commission
  • Inform current and future EGF policy at EU level.
