The next OCTA webinar on EU programmes took place on Wednesday 30 June 21h-22h15 (Brussels time).
InvestEU is a completely new programme that will become the sole EU source of loans and equity financing for OCTs.
The OCTs do not have a designated financial intermediary, which makes the access to the programme comparatively more challenging, therefore the information received from the European Commission will be key to understanding the possibilities for OCTs within InvestEU.
The programme was presented by M Filippo MUNISTERI, Team Leader in the Unit for InvestEU Implementation at the European Commission.

If you would like to have an additional overview of how InvestEU works, the following presentations are a great introduction to the three main pillars of the programme:
The InvestEU Fund aims to mobilise more than €372 billion of public and private investment through an EU budget guarantee of €26.2 billion that backs the investment of implementing partners such as the European Investment Bank (EIB) Group and other financial institutions.
The InvestEU Advisory Hub provides technical support and assistance to help with the preparation, development, structuring and implementation of investment projects, including capacity building.
The InvestEU Portal brings together investors and project promoters on a single EU-wide platform, by providing an easily-accessible and user-friendly database of investment opportunities available within the EU.
