The Institute supports higher education and research activities, mainly through grants or sponsorships (EIBURS, STAREBEI). The Institute fosters higher education through cooperation agreements with universities and research centres across Europe. Results from our research activities are accessible via our research map.

We organise the EIB Summer School, a 10 day programme for graduate students to learn about the core activities and responsibilities of the EIB Group.

The Institute conducts student consultancy projects (Capstones) on selected topics relevant to the EIB Group’s activities and organises courses on the EIB Group’s role, missions and activities.

The Institute regularly organises seminars and supports conferences with prominent speakers to encourage knowledge dissemination and innovative thinking about issues of particular concern to the EIB Group. These serve both to help staff in their work and inform the general public.
