The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund In Ireland

About the EGF

The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) was established in December 2006 to support workers made redundant as a result of major changes in global trade patterns to assist them back into employment as soon as possible.

The EGF does not cover all redundant workers. Members states can generally only make applications for EGF assistance in cases were at least 500 workers are made redundant in a single company over a four month period or in a particular sector of economic activity over a nine month period.

The scope of the EGF covers education and training programmes, career advice and guidance, and enterprise supports. EGF programme supports may only be provided within a 24 month period starting from the date of submission of an EGF application.
