About Us

The East of Scotland European Consortium (ESEC) is a local authority membership organisation with a political board which collaborates on a shared EU agenda as it affects and supports economic development in the area. ESEC’s agenda is mainly concentrated around EU policy developments and associated lobbying activity but also EU funding opportunities and strategic projects.

ESEC was established in 1991 to promote the interests of its local authority members and engage with European policy and funding issues on their behalf. ESEC is a non-statutory joint committee with political representations from 7 local authorities in central and eastern Scotland.

For examples of the EU-funded projects being delivered by our member councils, please see our case study booklet.
