Scottish Government launches consultation on EU funding replacement

The Scottish Government announced on 5 November that it has launched a consultation on the replacement of European Structural Funds should the UK leave the European Union.

The current funding programme has invested in areas such as the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme.

The UK Government has committed to rolling out a successor programme called the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, although there is no detail yet on how this would operate.

Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation Ivan McKee said: “This consultation provides an opportunity to contribute views on how any replacement funding vehicle can best meet the needs of our people, our businesses and our communities.”
