The Euroradio Development Fund was initially set up in 2001 to allow the Euroradio Committee a degree of flexibility in encouraging, supporting and benchmarking new program initiatives outside of the normal budgetary process. The Fund aims at reviving and encouraging collaborative projects among Members for the sake of more diverse program content. Now the Fund is back in action again, replenished by decision of the Euroradio Committee in 2013.
