Investment Plan for Europe: the Juncker Plan

Short description: 
The Investment Plan for Europe (the Juncker Plan) has three objectives - to remove obstacles to investment; to provide visibility and technical assistance to investment projects; and to make smarter use of financial resources.
Description: 

As such, the plan is made up of three pillars:

  • First, the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), which provides an EU guarantee to mobilise private investment. The Commission works together with its strategic partner, the European Investment Bank (EIB) Group.

  • Second, the European Investment Advisory Hub and the European Investment Project Portal which provide technical assistance and greater visibility of investment opportunities, thereby helping proposed investment projects become a reality. The Hub is a joint venture with the EIB Group.

  • Third, improving the business environment by removing regulatory barriers to investment both nationally and at EU level. 

Some examples:

  • EFSI: EUR 200m for refurbishing social housing in France with the SNI Group
  • Palma de Mallorca urban bus fleet renewal
  • VVO near-zero-energy building, Finland
