The EIB Institute’s vision and mission has been cascaded into three flagship Programmes.
The Knowledge Programme aims at channelling support, mainly through grants or sponsorship, to higher education and research activities, particularly in the field of applied economics within Europe.
Through its Social Programme, the EIB Institute is committed to acting as a catalyst for economic and social development within the EU Member States.
The EIB Institute recognises the value of the arts and culture as an integral part of both effective community engagement and corporate social responsibility. At the heart of the Institute’s mission is the belief that the arts and culture can be a powerful catalyst, in particular for relational and intellectual development, which is important for economic progress and social cohesion in the EU. Art is a unique source of dialogue, offering an extraordinary repertoire for learning, exploring, experimenting, interpreting the present and building the future.
