History of the programmes

“The vision for the Highlands & Islands is of prosperous, inclusive and self-sustaining communities, where the unique cultures, traditions and environments are enhanced and the region makes a distinctive contribution to Scotland, the UK and the EU competitiveness through supporting people, places and prosperity.”

€174,012,587 of Structural Funds aid has been awarded to the Highlands and Islands to achieve this vision through a set of co-ordinated priorities, working in tandem with the priorities of Scottish policy but also catalysing the Scottish Government’s commitment to improving the main sources of competitiveness in the economy of all parts of the region.  It does so fully within the context set by the Community Strategic Guidelines, the UK National Strategic Reference Framework and the UK National Reform Programme.
