London companies can bid for shares of over £560m of European funding with a particular focus on projects that help Londoners into education, employment or training and create new jobs.
 
The European Structural and Investment Funds programme, managed by City Hall, has already been used to help 63,000 people into work in London since 2007, supported 15,000 small businesses and leveraged £700m of investment in green infrastructure through the Mayor’s London Green Fund.

Boris Johnson, said: “As our city continues to grow, this new funding will enable thousands more people to get jobs and boost the capital’s economy.”
