Assessing the macroeconomic impact of EIB activities
Economic research is important to help the EIB to quantify the results and impacts of its activities, at both the project and the more macro level.
To assess the EIB Group and EFSI impact on jobs and growth in Europe, the EIB works with the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, using a macroeconomic model called RHOMOLO.
EIB partners with Global Development Network to study impact of projects in African Caribbean and Pacific countries
The EIB is partnering with the Global Development Network to study the impact of projects in sub-Saharan African, Caribbean and Pacific countries, under a new training and mentorship programme for local researchers. After training at EIB headquarters in Luxembourg the researchers will spend a year evaluating projects financed under the Bank’s Impact Financing Envelope. This will build skills and capacity in impact assessment in the regions and refine the understanding of EIB’s impact.
