Launch of the InvestEU Programme

Submitted by Imogen Allan on 05 March 2021

Supporting investment that delivers real benefits and makes a difference at the local level, and promoting recovery, green growth, employment, and wellbeing across Europe are some of Europe’s top priorities.

InvestEU will provide the EU with crucial long-term funding to support sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and help build a greener, more digital, and more resilient European economy.


The InvestEU programme builds on the successful model of the Investment Plan for Europe and the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), which mobilised more than €500 billion in total. With the aim of triggering a new wave – of more than €370 billion - in additional investment 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 InvestEU programme will be supported by a dedicated website which will serve as a one-stop shop; a unique entry point for InvestEU stakeholders and citizens to access information on the programme.


Clusters and SMEs can join the virtual launch event on 18 March at 15:30 CET to learn more about the InvestEU Fund, Advisory Hub and Portal, and the opportunities on offer.

The event will be moderated by Iciar Rodriguez Miranda, Deputy Head of Unit, Communication and Inter-Institutional Relations, DG ECFIN. Find the full agenda and register here.
