    The InvestEU programme builds on the successful model of the Investment Plan for Europe, the Juncker Plan. It will bring together, under one roof, the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) and 13 other EU financial instruments available since the period 2014 – 2020.

    The InvestEU programme aims to give an additional boost to sustainable investment, innovation, social inclusion and job creation in Europe.

    The programme consists of three building blocks: the InvestEU Fund, the InvestEU Advisory Hub and the InvestEU Portal.

    The European Investment Bank Group, including the European Investment Fund, is the main implementing partner of the InvestEU programme.

    InvestEU supports what is important to the European Union

    European Green Deal and just transition

    InvestEU contributes to the climate and environmental goals of the EU. At least 30% of the investment under the programme is dedicated to the objectives of the European Green Deal. In some sub-sections of the program, in other words the part for sustainable infrastructure, the share of climate and environment specific financing will go up to 60%. This will ensure that the EU develops into an even fairer and more prosperous society, with a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy.  

    To facilitate the green transition of territories that currently rely on CO2-intensive industries, InvestEU contemplates a dedicated Just Transition Scheme. The scheme is part of the Just Transition Mechanism, which will avoid that carbon neutrality within the EU comes at disproportionate costs among regions.


    Digital society

    Digital technologies are profoundly impacting our economies and societies. Europe is well-positioned to capture the value of digital transformation, inclusively and sustainably, to the benefit for all Europeans.

    InvestEU is part of it. Digital solutions supported under the programme open up new opportunities for businesses, boost the development of trustworthy technology, but also contribute to achieving the green transition.

    InvestEU Fund

    The InvestEU Fund combines EFSI and 13 other - formerly independently managed - EU financial instruments and is expected to stimulate more than €372 billion of public and private investment. An EU budget guarantee of €26.2 billion backs the investment of the European Investment Bank Group and other financial partners. The EIB Group will have access to 75% of this guarantee and will act as the main implementing partner for the fund.

    What will it finance?

    The InvestEU fund supports financing and investment operations across four EU policy priorities. The investment will focus on those areas where the EU can add the most value:

    Sustainable infrastructure

    Financing projects in sustainable energy, digital connectivity, transport, the circular economy, water, waste, other environment infrastructure and more.

    Research, innovation and digitalisation

    Financing projects in research and innovation, taking research results to the market, digitisation of industry, scaling up larger innovative companies, artificial intelligence and more.

    Small and medium-sized companies

    Facilitating access to finance for small and medium-sized companies (SMEs). This includes capital support for businesses that were negatively affected by the Covid-19 crisis. Within the EIB Group the European Investment Fund will implement the major share of InvestEU financing for smaller companies.

    Social investment and skills

    Financing projects in skills, education, training, social housing, schools, universities, hospitals, social innovation, healthcare, long-term care and accessibility, microfinance, social enterprise, integration of migrants, refugees and vulnerable people, and more. Together with the European Commission, we have established HERA Invest, a €100 million guarantee to support advanced research and development investments in the health sector.

    InvestEU Advisory Hub

    The InvestEU Advisory Hub builds on the success of the European Investment Advisory Hub and acts as the central entry point for promoters and intermediaries seeking financial advisory and technical assistance for the identification, preparation and development of investment projects across the Union.

    Managed by the European Commission, the InvestEU Advisory Hub will provide advisory services in support of the four InvestEU policy priorities. The EIB will remain the European Commission’s strategic partner, providing advisory support in all four areas as well as some cross-sectoral activities - including the continuation of the JASPERS programme and support for the Just Transition Mechanism.
