There is a great variety in the nature, size and aims of ESF projects, and they address a wide variety of target groups. There are projects aimed at education systems, teachers and schoolchildren; at young and older job-seekers; and at potential entrepreneurs from all backgrounds. People are the focus of the ESF.

Dutch ESF subsidies are implemented by Implementation of Policy, part of the Service, Collaboration and Implementation Department of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment. Between 2014 and 2020 The Netherlands has an amount of 507 million to spend. To give you an idea how this money is distributed, we would like to show you some of the projects.
