Dedicated EIB facility to finance small and medium size eligible investments promoted by SMEs and / or Mid-caps. One or more tranches might be specifically allocated to SMEs and / or Midcaps belonging to the so called Reti d'Impresa (enterprise networks).
It is expected that more than 50% of the loan will be used to finance SMEs. From past experience, the main sectors targeted should be: (i) industry; (ii) trade, transport and tourism and (iii) construction. This loan aims at supporting growth and employment in Italy.
In accordance with the Bank's policy to ensure that sub-loans comply with the EU acquis, in particular in the fields of environment and public procurement, the Bank will require such intermediary institution to take all the requisite measures to ensure that the environment and procurement procedures carried out by the final beneficiaries for the sub-projects that the Bank finances will comply with the relevant EU legislation and the applicable national legislation.
Final beneficiaries will be requested to comply with applicable national and EU legislation, as appropriate.
Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
