    • Investment less than EUR 20-25m

    Applications for the financing of small-scale projects should be sent directly to the financial institutions or commercial banks receiving EIB intermediated loans. For more information on EIB activities in the Mediterranean countries, download the EIB brochure "FEMIP Instruments".

    Are you a small business?
    Contact the EIB local financial intermediaries in your country.

    • Investment is more than EUR 20-25m

    Direct loans and risk capital financing can be requested directly from the EIB. As a general rule, a comprehensive feasibility study should be submitted. Where such a study has not been prepared, the promoter may use its own discretion in compiling as detailed a dossier as possible to permit the technical, environmental, economic, financial and legal appraisal of the project. There is no standard documentation and the Bank does not require its borrowers to complete set forms or questionnaires.

    Technical assistance

    Who is eligible for technical assistance?

    The beneficiaries of technical assistance are EIB borrowers including:

    • the governments of partner countries;
    • public utilities in the fields of infrastructure, water, energy, etc.;
    • operators in the financial sector and private promoters.


    Technical assistance operations are subject to a tendering procedure which is open to all natural and legal persons. If the financing is provided exclusively by the European Commission, participation is restricted to natural and legal persons in the Member States of the European Union and partner countries from the region covered by the financial regulation.

    Depending on who is procuring the consultancy services, the procurement follows either the European Commission (EC) “Practical Guide to contract procedures for EC external actions” (EuropeAid cooperation office) or the EIB Guide to Procurement. When the EIB acts as Contracting Authority, the procurement follows the EC Practical Guide; when the selection and contracting of the consultant is delegated by the EIB to a promoter, the EIB Guide to Procurement applies, in which case national rules are normally followed provided that they are compliant with the rules and principles laid down in the EIB Guide to Procurement.

    Interested service providers are invited to send their profile and documentation to the EIB Ops B DEAS Technical Assistance Unit (see contact details below).
