The figures on this page are not part of formal EIB Group reporting on EFSI. Therefore, they are provisional and unaudited. The figures are subject to change. Approvals of EIB projects by the EIB Board of Directors are a requirement for financing negotiations with project promoters which, if successful, lead to signatures.

The European Fund for Strategic Investments is delivering concrete results, encouraging a sustainable increase in the low investment levels in Europe after the financial crisis.
