EU Funding and Civil Society: The Launch of Access Europe & Spotlight Series with Minister of State Thomas Byrne TD

This special event with Minister of State for European Affairs Thomas Byrne TD will launch The Wheel’s Access Europe project.  

Funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Access Europe is a continuation of a previous successful project also involving The Wheel that will provide information, advice, helpdesk support and network building opportunities for civil society organisations around accessing and managing EU funding.  

This event will include a discussion between CEO of The Wheel Deirdre Garvey and Minister of State Thomas Byrne TD on civil society opportunities at EU level, and how Access Europe can support engagement.  

It will also launch the first of what will be a series of Access Europe Spotlight events, in which we highlight up-and-coming EU policy areas and the opportunities available to civil society through them. This first session will focus on the EU and social economy and will feature a panel discussion with various European social economy experts.
