Financial instruments such as loans, guarantees, equity and micro-finance can be useful tools for implementing the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF). A series of information events about these ESIF financial instruments is being organised by the EIB and European Commission through the fi-compass advisory service. National authorities are involved and the first of this fi-compass seminar series will take place in Slovakia on October 2nd.
Seminar sessions have been prepared to help participants to further their understanding of how financial instruments can help in their efforts to deliver ESIF 2014 - 2020 objectives. The Bratislava event programme also features case studies describing financial instruments from the Member States.
Further information will be provided during the seminar series covering latest European Commission guidance on regulatory aspects, as well as the advisory products offered by fi-compass to support the design and set-up of ESIF financial instruments. The seminar language is English, with interpretation offered in Slovak.
Registration for this Slovakian event and other fi-compass Member State seminars is available through the event calendar on the fi-compass website.
