What is eligible
Investment costs (typically over a period of 3-5 years) of the different sub-projects of the investment programme. The EIB covers up to 50% of the programme’s costs, which usually start from €100 million. If the programme also benefits from EU Funds, EIB and EU finance cannot exceed 70% of the total project investment costs (with exceptions).
Cities and regions have a variety of financing needs. When a single large investment project needs long-term funding, the European Investment Bank (EIB) can provide dedicated project-specific loans, which we call Investment loans.
