MEUSAC and the Parliamentary Secretariat for EU Funds and Social Dialogue hosted a seminar for local councils, NGOs and SMEs in Gozo on: ‘EU Funds: The Gozitan Experience’. This event was held on Friday, March 2, 2018 at the University of Malta, Gozo Campus.
Speaking in front of a packed hall, MEUSAC Head Vanni Xuereb referred to the Citizens’ Dialogue held the day before where EU Commissioner Günther Öttinger highlighted that funds tied to Erasmus+ will increase. Dr Xuereb also referred to Ottinger’s comments that Member States would need to fork out more funds to make up for the EU budget shortfall as a result of the UK’s exit from the EU. Dr Xuereb reminded Gozitans that MEUSAC has an office within the University of Malta – Gozo Campus, providing information on EU funds and other EU-related information.
A number of workshops were held during the seminar.
Gozo Minister Justyne Caruana and Parliamentary Secretary for EU Funds and Social Dialogue Aaron Farrugia also addressed those present.
