“EIB meets La Sapienza’’ course presenting the EIB Group to La Sapienza Università di Roma students started on 19 March with a seminar on “The EIB Group”.

Three other lectures will present EIB operations, project and business cycle (26 March), the EIB Climate Bank Roadmap (23 April -tbc) and the EIF & European Guarantee Fund (30 April). This is the fourth year the EIB meets La Sapienza course takes place.

Last week, the Institute signed its first research contract for young researchers (STAREBEI) with Sapienza Università di Roma for a study on “The EIB and geographic divergence in the EU”.

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.

In 2020, 71 lectures in 10 EU universities were organized including  new courses at the universities of Rijeka and Sofia.
