The EIB acts as a catalyst for better understanding the challenge of investing in Europe’s economy and meeting the financing needs of that investment.

The goal of the EIB Economics Department is to act as a hub for research into investment and investment finance from across Europe. We bring together our own research and unique data sources with top-level research from across Europe, providing an entry point for researchers and a platform for dialogue.

Supporting EIB strategy and operations

We also play a critical role in supporting EIB operations through the analysis of the changing economic context, investment opportunities and risks, helping to define the Bank’s positioning, strategy and policy in Europe and beyond. We work to enhance the Bank’s ability to assess risks and track the impacts of its investments at both the micro and macro levels.

With a core team of 25 economists, the department is led by Director Debora Revoltella.
