Specialist European Teams

Specialist European Teams (SETs) supported the Wales European Funding Office (WEFO) in the delivery of Convergence funding across Wales.

Organisations involved in the SETs were the Welsh Assembly Government Departments of Economy and Transport (DE&T) and Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DCELLs); the 15 local authorities in Wales; and the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA).

SETs consisted of a Core management function provided by Welsh Government, and an Outreach regional function provided by local authority experts and based in each local authority area. In Torfaen, Convergence guidance and support was delivered by the EU Policy & External Funding section.

SETs helped to ensure that a joined-up, strategic approach was taken towards project planning, development and delivery through the advice, support and partnership facilitation they provided at local and regional level. Examples of supported projects and the partners we’ve worked with across the region are featured in the Europe and South East Wales document and www.youtube.com/SEWalesSET
