Following Estonia's accession to the EU, EAS became one of the agencies implementing EU structural funds in Estonia. During the 2007-2013 EU financing period, EUR 784 million (EEK 12 billion) of the more than EUR 3.4 billion (EEK 53 billion) of structural aid to Estonia has been implemented by Enterprise Estonia. In EU's new, 2014-2020 funding period, the budget for Structural Funds is 3.5 billion euros, of which 588.1 million is to be implemented by Enterprise Estonia.
