EGF Managing Authority

EGF LogoWho we are

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

Operational from 2007, the 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.
