If you have a project which aims to keep employees working productively for longer or you want to pursue an age-aware personnel policy, you may qualify for the Sustainable Employability subsidy from the European Social Fund (ESF). The subsidy is for consultant fees charged by an external consultant.

ESF 2014 - 2020 will be succeeded by ESF+ for 2021 - 2027.

When do you qualify?

  • Your project does not run longer than 12 months. The duration of the project period begins the day after the subsidy has been signed and ends 12 months later.
  • You must show that employees are actively and demonstrably involved in the project. This should be included in the recommendation or final report.
  • You choose your own expert to advise you on matters pertaining to sustainable employability. You must be able to prove their expertise in this area.
