If your application for funding is successful you must inform the public about the support you receive.

If you have a website for professional use, you must place on your website a short description of the project where a link between the purpose of the website and the support provided to the project can be established and highlighting the financial support received.

If you receive funding of more than €50,000 you must put up an explanatory plaque with information about your project and highlighting the financial support you receive.

All plaques must include:

  • the European emblem in accordance with the standards detailed in EU Commission Regulation 808/2014 Annex III Part 2
  • the statement “The European Agriculture Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas”
  • a description of the project which shall take up at least 25 per cent of the plaque

The emblem should be as per the standards presented on the European Union website.

If you fail to erect a plaque we may seek the recovery of payments made to you for the project in question.

Examples of suitable wording for plaques:

Suggested plaque text: The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in Rural Areas. Providing moorland management for livestock and deer, and seed and crops for farmland birds
