How to receive EIB support

How to receive EIB support

Within the EU

Smaller private companies

Small and medium sized enterprises (with fewer than 250 employees) and Mid-Caps (with 250-3 000 employees) receive intermediated loans towards investment projects costing up to EUR 25m (and occasionally EUR 50m).

Contact our network of local partners for more information. Our funding is channelled through these intermediaries which set the loan conditions.

For other SME financing options, see here.

Local public authorities

Local authorities also receive intermediated loans towards investment projects costing up to EUR 25m.

Contact our network of local partners for more information. Our funding is channelled through these intermediaries which set the loan conditions.

Local authorities can also access urban development technical assistance through the JESSICA programme and can maximise investment for sustainable energy via the ELENA scheme. New EU Member States can receive infrastructure project advice under the JASPERS programme.

Major project finance

We lend directly to major projects towards investment projects costing in excess of EUR 25m. To receive our backing, these projects must further EU policy goals as well as being financially, environmentally and technically viable. For more information, write to us directly.

Lending, blending and advising

Lending accounts for most of our support. However, we also help clients blend our loans with other sources of investment and we offer advice to help maximise value for money. See which sectors we support and our list of products. For more information, write to us directly.

Outside the EU

Many of the services offered within the EU are also available in the rest of the world. See here for more details of our extra-EU work. The intermediaries for SMEs and local authorities are listed here.

We do not provide grants

The European Commission is the EU institution for grant financing. See here for details.
