FONDO SOCIAL EUROPEO (FSE)

The European Social Fund is Europe's main tool for supporting employment creation, helping people get better jobs and ensuring fairer job opportunities for all EU citizens. To this end, the European Social Fund invests in European human capital: workers, young people and all those seeking employment. ESF funding amounts to €10 billion a year and improves the job prospects of millions of Europeans, particularly those who have trouble finding work. The European Commission and the EU Member States set the priorities of the European Social Fund jointly and decide on how its resources are used. One of the priorities is to promote the adaptability of workers by helping them to acquire new skills, and also companies, by promoting new forms of work. Other priorities focus on improving access to employment, supporting young students in their transition to the world of work, or training low-skilled jobseekers to improve their job prospects. Another priority focuses on helping people in vulnerable situations to find work. This helps to reinforce 'social inclusion', as quality employment plays a crucial role in social integration and daily life.
