Regional Council :: EU Programmes


Due to its wide range of objectives and responsibilities, which include all aspects of life, the Regional Council´s tasks are manifold. With Finland being a member of the European Union the Regional Councils implement and supervise the programmes of the European regional politics. It is within the responsibilities of the Regional Councils to realize these tasks.

During the period of the years 2007-2013 the Regional Council of Päijät-Häme administrates through its EU Unit the Southern Finland ERDF Programme
