Seminar on combining ESIF and EFSI: 23-24th May 2017

Combining European Structural and Investment Funds and the European Fund for Strategic Investments: options for funding infrastructure and SME support operations

23/05/2017 – 24/05/2017
Brussels, Belgium

This seminar-workshop will describe how to use European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) alongside the EFSI instrument, the European Fund for Strategic Investment (a part of the so-called “Juncker Plan”). EFSI exists to lever private funding into projects with a higher degree of risk.

The seminar will look at how EFSI works and how the funding can be accessed – what is the thinking behind EFSI, how it is structured and managed, and in what circumstances can it be used. There will be a focus on how to use EFSI with ESI Funds. We will present some examples from around the EU of where the instruments have been used together, and to examine specifically how EFSI will work in conjunction with Financial Instruments – an ESIF instrument for providing public and private sector support to companies. There will be keynote presentations from DG REGIO and DG ECFIN on EFSI, Financial Instruments and Major projects.
