The InvestEU Fund is operational since 2022. Following the launch of the InvestEU Programme, in addition to the EIB Group, a list of further implementing partners will soon be available on this website. InvestEU implementing partners provide direct and intermediated financing solutions for both private and public projects promoters (‘final recipients’).
A guarantee agreement with the EIB Group, the main implementing partner, was signed in March 2022, so that companies and project promoters can start applying for financing.
Guarantee agreements with other implementing partners will follow in the course of 2022.

Who can apply for financing?
The InvestEU Fund provides support to final recipients that are deemed economically viable according to internationally accepted standards.
The eligible final recipients can be natural or legal persons established in an EU country or in a Third Eligible Country, including:
- Private entities such as special-purpose vehicles (SPV) or project companies, large corporates, midcap companies, including small midcap companies, and SMEs
- Public sector entities (territorial or not) and public-sector type entities
- Mixed entities, such as public–private partnership (PPPs) and private companies with a public purpose
- Non-for-profit organisations
How to apply for financing?
Project promoters should apply directly to implementing partners who will offer tailor-made financing solutions based on the financial products supported by the EU guarantee.
Financial intermediaries should also consult the offering of implementing partners active in their regions proposing relevant products: it is up to them to select financial intermediaries through procedures such as calls for expressions of interest.
Eligible InvestEU Implementing Partners, in addition to the EIB Group, will be listed on this website.
Small mid-caps, SMEs and social or micro-enterprises
These entities should apply to their local commercial or public banks whose financial products are covered by the EU guarantee in their country or region. The local intermediary will inform them if a particular financing programme is covered by the InvestEU Fund.
Find your local intermediary on our Access to Finance website, which already lists intermediaries under current EU programmes and will successively list InvestEU financial intermediaries.
