Welcome to the EGF Ireland Website

The Competent Authority for the EGF in Ireland, the EGF Managing Authority unit of the Department of Education and Skills, closely monitors large redundancy situations nationwide in order to assess whether any sustainable case meeting the strict qualifying criteria might be considered for possible co-funded support from the EGF.


The European Commission has produced a video giving an overview of the European Globalisation Fund. The video can be seen at the following link: European Commission EGF Video


The Rules governing the EGF were amended in October 2019 to enable the Fund to support workers made redundant as a result of the likely economic disruptions caused by a withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the Union without a withdrawal agreement. Further information is available here.


Public Consultation for the ex-post Evaluation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund

The European Commission is currently carrying out an evaluation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF).

As part of the evaluation, the Commission has launched a survey to consult a wide range of stakeholders to make sure that all different views are included.

The public consultation is open to everyone whether they have previously heard about the existence of the EGF or not. It includes both more general and targeted questions which is dependent on your level of familiarity with the EGF.

The public consultation will run until 16th September and is available here
