EU Funding for Tourism

The Commission has published a Guide on EU funding for tourism, which provides information on EU funds that are available to private individuals, SMEs, corporations, academic institutions as well as public authorities based in the tourism sector. Those funds are financed by the new budget of the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) 2021-2027 and Next Generation EU.

The user-friendly guide contains links to the relevant EU funding programmes as well as respective call for proposals.
