The Institute organises and coordinates courses provided by EIB Group staff on the EIB’s Group role, missions 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.

With close to two hundred lectures delivered to date, some fifty EIB Group staff members have become part of the EIBI’s faculty transferring their knowledge to students who have the potential to become in the future colleagues, clients or stakeholders.

​In 2022, 16 courses (75 lectures) at 13 universities were provided by EIB and EIF Staff. Two EIB Vice-Presidents (including VP Pavlova pictured here giving a lecture at Sofia University) were among the 40 speakers. Courses were held at the University of Sofia, College of Europe Natolin, College of Europe Bruges, TU Dresden, Sapienza, Sciences Po, Bocconi, UCL, Università degli Studi di Bari and University of Luxembourg.  New courses were launched at the universities of Coimbra (Portugal) and Bucharest (Romania). In 2022 the EIBI has also launched courses outside the European Union, with the first course held at EUROMED University of Fez (Morocco).
