Universities are not specifically mentioned in the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), though the project is covered by Annex II of the Directive in relation to Urban Development. The Bank’s services will verify the screening decisions taken by the Competent Authority, and will review all environmental aspects including potential impacts on nature conservation sites (ex: Natura 2000) during appraisal. The energy efficiency standards to be achieved by the new buildings will also be examined during appraisal
The Bank requires the promoter to ensure that all relevant contracts for the planning, implementation and operation of the project are tendered in accordance with relevant EU procurement legislation. The detailed procurement issues will be studied during appraisal
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).
