European Projects

Roscommon Leader Partnership is constantly striving to find new resources and initiatives particularly at a European level that can be replicated and administered here on a local basis.
We have successfully delivered European projects since 2015 and forged many international partnerships as a result.
Currently, we are involved in delivering seven EU Erasmus + Projects which will create a new dynamic in providing innovative supports to our target groups and communities.
Speaking about the company’s focus on Europe, Martina Earley, CEO explains ‘we are conscious we have so much to learn from Europe in terms of new approaches and innovative learning.

We are very proud to be supporting the local delivery of seven projects under the Erasmus + programme.
Each of these programmes is of direct relevance and will greatly enhance our work in Roscommon Leader Partnership.
