60 years of ESF - happy birthday!
The ESF celebrates its 60th anniversary together with the Treaty of Rome in March 2017. Since 1957, the ESF has become the most important instrument for promoting employment and social integration in Europe. Almost 10 million Europeans have found a job in the last funding period 2007-2014 with support from the ESF.
For a new Lean Fund Management
At its meeting on 24 November 2016, the Federal monitoring committee adopted the "Position paper of the Federal ESF Managing Authority on the post-2020 ESF - For a new Lean Fund Management (LFM)".
Almost 10 million Europeans have found a job with the support from the ESF
With the support of the ESF, at least 9.4 million people have found a job in Europe by the end of 2014, almost 610,000 in Germany. This is the case in the current report of the European Commission on the ESF in the funding period 2007 to 2013.
