“If you have an EU-based project worth 10 million euros or more and are looking for private investment to realise it, you should know about the European Investment Project Portal (EIPP)”, the European Commission announced recently.
The EU has launched a major investment offensive to get Europe growing again and get people back to work. The EU is removing obstacles to investment by mobilising finance, supporting investment in the real economy and creating an investment friendly environment.
The most recent step the EU has taken is setting up the EIPP, which aims to connect investors and projects across the EU. The website allows you to register your project in a web portal with advanced search and filtering criteria, making it possible for you and like-minded investors to get in touch.
The EIPP is currently in its pre-launch phase. This gives you the chance to pre-submit your project for a reduced fee of 100 euros (which will increase to 250 euros for private entities once the Portal goes live, while public entities will remain exempt from the fee).
Projects may be submitted now by filling in an application form. Payment details will be sent after the registration request is received.
Check here that your project complies with the terms and conditions laid out on the website before submission.
