Welcome to the EGF Ireland Website
The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) was established to support redundant workers. Information about the EGF and the Regulations governing its operations is available here.
Ireland has made seven successful applications to the EGF.
On 29th February 2012 the Department of Education and Skills submitted an application seeking co-financing assistance from the EGF for redundant workers at the Talk Talk call centre facility in Waterford and at three ancillary companies. This application was accepted by the European Commission on the 25th October 2012. Information on the programme is available here.
Information about how the EGF is managed and implemented in Ireland is available here.
