Case study: The European Investment Bank’s (EIB) strategies and initiatives to support sustainable employment and growth in Europe

As the bank of the European Union, the EIB steps up its response to the changing economic conditions that occurred as a consequence of the 2008 global financial crisis. It does so through a range of policies and initiatives aimed at boosting jobs and growth in Europe in the face of a debt and investment crisis.

In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, supporting sustainable employment and growth in Europe is a matter of crucial importance for the EIB as the EU bank, as it lies at the heart of Europe’s economic revival. In order to support sustainable employment and growth in Europe the EIB took action to:
• finance strategic new projects
• offer technical assistance and advisory services via a European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH)
• support innovation and skills through initiatives such as InnovFin (between 2014 and 2020 it is expected that the InnovFin products will make available more than EUR 24bn of financing for research and innovation) and
• provide access to finance for smaller businesses – in 2014 the EIB Group financed SMEs and midcaps in Europe to the tune of EUR 25.5bn
