The Institute supports research through grants:

EIBURS (EIB University Research Sponsorship) is a programme that provides research grants of up to EUR 100 000 a year, for a period of three years, to research centres working on topics of major interest to the EIB Group (EIB and EIF). Twenty-nine EIBURS research projects led by 24 universities and research centres from 11 countries have been financed so far.

STAREBEI (STAges de REcherche BEI-EIB research internships) is a programme that provides grants to universities in order to finance junior researchers carrying out research projects proposed by the EIB Group (EIB and EIF) under the joint supervision of a university tutor and an EIB co-tutor. To date, more than 30 young researchers from 26 universities in 11 European countries have benefited from the STAREBEI programme.
