The 2020 ‘’EIB meets La Sapienza’’ course ended on 22 May with a seminar on “The European Investment Fund: Social Commitment & Impact Finance”.

Three other lectures took place on “The EIB Group Corporate Presentation” (24 April), “How do we work & how do we make decisions” (8 May) and “Investment Cost/Benefit Evaluation & Social Impact Evaluation” (15 May).

In addition, the results of a STAREBEI research grant on “Investment for Growth and Development in the Western Balkans: The case of the Western Balkans Investment Framework (WBIF)” were presented during two online lectures by the EIB tutor at Sapienza University on 20 and 21 May.

The Institute organises and coordinates courses provided by EIB Group staff on the EIB Group’s role, mission and activities. A typical course is structured over three or four sessions covering the EIB Group’s (EIB and EIF) role and strategy, financing products or project cycles.

Specific courses may be provided on project finance, microfinance and inclusive finance, infrastructure financing and management. In some cases, courses may be organised at the EIB premises.
