(18 April 2014) – The “EU Budget in My Country” pages on the website of the Directorate-General for Budget highlight key information on the use of EU funds in each of the 28 Member States. It also emphasises a number of projects and activities it finances in each of the countries.
The EU budget is mainly invested in large and ambitious projects that Member States cannot fund on their own. These projects cover a wide range of fields, from employment, energy, transport and infrastructure to research and education, environment, humanitarian aid and many other fields.
The EU budget provides financial support to thousands of beneficiaries such as students, researchers, entrepreneurs, scientists, farmers, NGOs, towns, regions and many others. Most importantly, it creates opportunities that people would never have had without the financial help of the EU.
