EUROCROWD publishes today the second report on how to manage the use of European Structural and Investment Funds in combination with crowdfunding: Scaling Up Partnerships: A Blueprint For the Implementation Of Match-Funding Schemes Between Public Authorities and Crowdfunding Platforms. The findings showcase that over the last three years, match-funding practices in Europe have increased significantly, proving that public authorities can create measurable impact when co-investing public resources alongside citizens.
It is these match-funding schemes that are at the forefront of the report, which presents specific and concrete examples from 8 European countries and 22 best practices. These examples provide an in-depth insight into how such partnerships can work, especially when including the use of public – such as European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) – resources. The report also provides a handy blueprint specifically developed for an easy adaptation and development of crowdfunding partnerships.
