EGF Programmes

Ireland has made 10 successful applications to the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF).  7 of these applications have been for workers made redundant in specifically named companies (i.e., Dell, Waterford Crystal, and SR Technics, Talk Talk, Andersen Ireland, Lufthansa Technik, PWA International and the other 3 EGF applications covered almost 9,000 workers and apprentices made redundant in three sectors of the construction industry.

All 10 EGF programmes are now closed.

The Competent Authority for the EGF in Ireland, the EGF Managing Authority of the Department of Education and Skills, actively monitors redundancy announcements nationwide with regard to potentially meeting the strict eligibility criteria for possible support from the EGF.
