The Council of the European Union agrees its position on revised Commissions proposal for InvestEU

The intent of InvestEU is to motivate public and private investor participation in financing and investment operations by providing guarantees from the EU budget to address failures and sub-optimal investment situations. The revised Commission proposal increased the budget for InvestEU and includes a new window for strategic European investments, in addition to the previously proposed policy windows.
The Council indicates that the EU guarantee will amount to 23.5 billion euro and provisioned at a rate of 40%.

The guarantee provided by the EU is distributed across four policy windows:

  • The sustainable infrastructure window (35%)
  • The research, innovation and digitisation window (27.5%)
  • The SME window (27.5%)
  • The Social investment and skills window (10%)
