Launch InvestEU programme
2021-03-18 @ 15:30 - 18:00
The promotion of recovery, green growth, employment and well-being across Europe is one of the EU’s top priorities, supporting investment that delivers real benefits and makes a difference at the local level.
InvestEU will provide the EU with crucial long-term funding, crowding in private investment in support of a sustainable recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and helping build a greener, more digital and more resilient European economy.
The InvestEU programme builds on the successful model of the Investment Plan for Europe and the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), which mobilised more than €500 billion. With the aim of triggering a new wave – more than €370 billion – in additional investment using an EU budget guarantee, the InvestEU programme aims to give an additional boost to investment, innovation and job creation in Europe over the period 2021-27.
The InvestEU programme will be supported by a dedicated website which will serve as a one-stop shop, a unique entry point for InvestEU stakeholders and citizens to access information on the programme.
Join us to learn more about the InvestEU Fund, Advisory Hub and Portal and the opportunities they offer.
