Financial information 2022

Our income remained stable in 2022 compared to recent years.

We continued to maintain a good balance between funding sources, with EU funding representing 30% of our income. We continued to significantly increase the proportion of our income from charitable foundations. A total of 22 funders together with our member groups have contributed to our income. We avoided, therefore, major dependencies on too few funding sources. The vast majority of our funders have continued to support our work and we expect ongoing cooperation in 2023 as well.
