The Risk Sharing Finance Facility (RSFF) is an innovative credit risk-sharing scheme jointly set up by the European Commission and the European Investment Bank to improve access to debt financing for private companies or public institutions promoting activities with a higher financial risk profile in the fields of research, technological development, demonstration and innovation investments.
EUR 150 million
EUR 359 million
The RDI activities are expected to be carried out in existing R&D centres already authorised and will not change their scope due to the project; an EIA is therefore not needed as per EIA Directive 85/337/EC, amended by Directives 97/11/EC and 2000/35/EC; however the Bank's services will further investigate all the environmental details during the due diligence.
The promoter is a private company not operating in the utilities sector, and is thus not covered by EU Directives on procurement.
