TAF organizes an event about InvestEU Programme

On June 15th, the TAF Talks 2.0 series of webinars organized “Funding opportunities under InvestEU programme”. This is the single EU programme of support to private investments, with a view to pursue EU policy objectives and foster the economic recovery, through mobilization of public and private resources.

Antonio Fancellu, from the Italian Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP), presented the Programme, which builds on the successful model of the Investment Plan for Europe, the Juncker Plan which mobilised more than €500 billion in the period 2015-20. With the aim of triggering a new wave – more than €372 billion - in investments using an EU budget guarantee, the InvestEU Programme aims to give an additional boost to investment, innovation and job creation in Europe over the period 2021-27.

The Programme streamlines financial instruments for internal EU policies by simplifying support to investments. The Programme is based on 3 pillars:

  1. InvestEU Fund that offers a budgetary guarantee to cover financial operations carried out by Implementing Partners.
  2. InvestEU Advisory Hub that provides support through advisory and accompanying measures during the whole investment cycle, to foster project development and access to financing. It also offers a single entry point for Project promoters and financial intermediaries.
  3. InvestEU Portal that enhances the visibility of investment opportunities in the EU, helping Project promoters seeking financing sources.

Fancellu also explained how CDP Works as an implementing partner of InvestEU in Italy.
