A capstone is a students’ consultancy project: a team of four to six Masters’ students works under the supervision of the EIB Group staff who has proposed the topic. Projects have a resolutely operational approach and enable students to undertake a real-life consulting project on topic relevant to the EIB Group. At the same time, they allow EIB Group staff to carry out useful and often directly applicable operational research.

Once the project is finalised, the students’ team is invited to the EIB in order to present the results of its work.

Projects carried out in 2021 were:  How to make a volunteering programme successful and How to measure successful digital transformation investments, both with Sciences Po and Estimating the future needs of European SMEs with the LSE.
