About the event

The European Commission – DG REGIO, DG AGRI and DG EMPL in partnership with the European Investment Bank (EIB) are pleased to invite you to the webinar ‘ESIF financial instruments under the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative (CRII)’, taking place on 11 May 2020, from 14:00 until 16:15 CEST.

Under the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative (CRII) / CRII Plus package of measures, the Common Provisions Regulation 1303/2013 (CPR) has been amended to enable European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) mobilised through financial instruments by Member States to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. The European Commission and the EIB panelists will discuss the new flexibilities for financial instruments under the CPR and related measures in relation to State aid and public procurement as well as answer participants' questions on the topic. The Slovak Investment Holding Anti-Corona Guarantee will also be presented during the event.

We will be collecting incoming questions ahead of the webinar and we will try to discuss as many as possible during the live session. If you would like to submit a question, you can do so on the registration page.
