The purpose of this seminar series is to provide stakeholders with the opportunity to learn more about the advantages, features and suitability of financial instruments in delivering the 2014-2020 ESIF objectives with a specific focus on the thematic priorities of the respective Member State. A short video from a recent Member State event gives a good idea of what the seminars are like.

Representatives from the European Commission, the European Investment Bank Group as well as national experts will share their expertise and know-how on implementing financial instruments under ESIF in practice. Each seminar will consist of:

  • A plenary session including the presentation of case studies, and
  • A workshop session to learn and discuss technical challenges regarding design and set-up of financial instruments.

These fi-compass learning events will be particularly useful for managing authorities and other public authorities and private sector stakeholders dealing with financial instruments under the ERDF, Cohesion Fund, ESF, EAFRD, and EMFF. The main seminar language will be English. Depending on the event, interpretation into the national language may be provided. The registration is free.

These events have limited seats available, so interested participants should secure your attendance quickly by logging in to their user profile (for already registered fi-compass users) or creating a fi-compass profile here (for new fi-compass users). After logging in, events can be selected directly on the calendar.
