Drawing up EU projects

Grants from EU funds are equally tempting to public users, as well as to entrepreneurs, but drafting a project itself is a complex and demanding process that implies analytical consulting, drafting of a project proposal with a business plan and applying for funding. 

UHY experts drew up more than 150 projects that got almost one billion kuna of funds approved.

Drawing up projects for tenders from the rural development program

Almost half of the total population in Croatia lives in municipalities and villages with less than 10,000 inhabitants. The Rural development programme RH 2014-2020 can advance living and working conditions for this population.

The total value of this programme is 2.4 billion euros, but it is important to know that the preparation process is demanding and implies knowledge of terminology, as well as the ability to form a project idea that will be positively assessed and approved for funding.

Drawing up the project for the Rural development programme tenders includes:

  • The process of developing an idea
  •  Preparation of supporting documentation
  •  Preparation of the project proposal and the application itself
  •  Support in preparation of Applications for Aid

UHY experts for EU funds have experience in preparation and implementation of more than 40 projects from rural development.

Drawing up projects for tenders from the European Social Fund

Cities, municipalities and the civil sector have the possibility to finance employment, learning and social inclusion in their field through tenders form the European Social Fund until 2020.

The Operational Programme Efficient Human Resources has ensured a total of 1.5 billion euros that are  intended solely for:

  • Employment and labour mobility
  • Social Inclusion
  • Education and lifelong learning
  • Good governance

During the preparation of the project, individual approach is extremely important as each project idea should be elaborated thoroughly from the original idea to a quality and sustainable project proposal that will be successfully judged by the evaluators. 

Our portfolio includes more than 25 drawn up and implemented projects that have been funded by the European Social Fund.

Drawing up projects for EU tenders for entrepreneurs

In order to reduce the significant economic and social divergences of its members, but also to increase the competitiveness of the European economy, the EU, as part of the implementation of cohesion policy (so-called solidarity policy), ensured funding for less developed members, including Croatia. 

Operational Programme Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014 – 2020 is a fundamental programming document providing 6.8 billion euros to Croatia for growth and development of jobs through infrastructure investments and the development of entrepreneurship and research activities.

UHY experts with more than 40 successfully prepared projects can help entrepreneurs with: 

  • Developing entrepreneurial ideas
  • Collection and sorting of tender documents
  • Structural and linguistic adjustments of the documentation for EU funds

Drawing up projects for EU tenders for public users

There are two basic Operational Programmes for the  implementation of the so-called Solidarity policy in the EU in Croatia: Efficient Human Resources 2014-2020 and Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014-2020.

The first programme is intended for “soft” projects, those that improve people’s skills, provide better social inclusion and improve and connect the public administration system to the needs of citizens.

The second programme is, to the fullest extent, intended to stimulate infrastructure investments, which we also call “hard” projects.

  • Public users can apply and receive grants from both programmes.
  • UHY experts with more than 35 project proposals for public users can help cities, municipalities, public institutions and museums with:

Status analysis

Elaboration of project ideas and adjustments to the tendering conditions

Preparation and sorting of tender documents

Feasibility study and cost benefit analysis for infrastructural projects
