Program Overview

Session 1: High-level overview  

Together with policy experts, let's scope the complex territory of EU funding for impact. Speakers will present a clear, informative overview of all the financial instruments available to impact players. Expect to learn the ins and outs of InvestEU and ESF+ and see the true value of public-private collaborations. We’ll also take a look at non-financial support resources, such as InvestEU Advisory Hub and the EU Social Economy Gateway.  

Session 2: Learnings from the past   

See the funding instruments from Session 1 in action. We’ll break into small groups to examine insightful cases, with plenty of room for discussion, questions and experience exchange. You’ll get the practical insights your organisation needs for applying the right EU funding and support for your impact goals. 

Session 3: New EU financial instruments 

Time to get even more practical. European Investment Fund (EIF) experts will share the newest financial instruments available to social investors. Then, you’ll get a chance to present your organisation’s projects and hear feedback directly from the EIF panelists.  Don’t miss a chance for truly actionable insights, tailored to your real projects!
