  • EURoma is a European Network of representatives of twelve Member States, determined to promote the use of Structural Funds to enhance the effectiveness of policies targeting Roma people and to promote their social inclusion.

    Led by the Spanish ESF Managing Authority (UAFSE), it gathers the ESF Managing Authorities and the bodies in charge of the policies targeting the Roma population from 12 Member States (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, Greece, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Slovakia and Sweden).

    The Fundación Secretariado Gitano (FSG) is in charge of the Technical Secretariat of the Network.

    In line with its objective, two working lines are undertaken:

    • Transmission and exchange of information, through internal and external communication channels
    • Mutual learning: sharing of approaches and strategies, identification and transfer of experiences, creation of a forum for the organisation and management of projects, development of common and transversal products.

    Structural Funds are the main financial instrument at the disposal of EU Member States to implement policies aimed to improve the social cohesion within the EU. Therefore it is important to guarantee the access to Structural Funds to certain groups (such as the Roma population) that, due to their disadvantaged situation, would have more difficulties to benefit from them.

    In this context, in june 2007, the Spanish government -through its ESF Managing Authority-, together with the Fundación Secretariado Gitano (FSG) and the European Commission, launched this initiative to create a new European network aimed at jointly work on initiatives, measures and projects that build upon the experienced gained and to set the basis for a joint strategy that allow achieve a qualitative change as regards the social inclusion of the Roma population.
