About the ESF

The ESF is Europe’s main funding body for supporting jobs, investing in Europe’s human capital, and ensuring fairer and better job opportunities for all EU citizens. These goals are at the core of the Europe 2020 strategy to reduce youth unemployment. The current ESF fund has a programming period from 2013-2020, and has been awarded an annual budget of EUR 10 billion to establish initiatives such as the Youth Guarantee scheme.
