The Institute aims at channelling support, mainly through grants or sponsorship, to higher education and research activities, particularly in the field of applied economics within Europe.

We are 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. Art is a unique source of dialogue, offering an extraordinary repertoire for learning, exploring, experimenting, interpreting the present and building the future.

We also support Tunisia88, a programme to promote musical education as a way to encourage mutual discovery and foster harmony across different cultures, in a country where there is no musical education for high-school students.
