Boosting the European Fund for Strategic Investment

The European Fund for Strategic Investment was designed to boost investment in Europe’s flagging economy.

MEPs, the Commission and civil society met to debate how the fund could be improved and how it could unlock investment in high quality social services.

The initial phase of the European Fund for Strategic Investment comes to a close at the end of 2018. The European Commission is expected to come out with a proposal, in autumn this year, to extend the life of the fund in 2018 and beyond.
