Co-organised by the Steering Board for Social Infrastructure and hosted by Mr Alfred Sant MEP, this European Parliament Seminar is part of the Lifelong Learning Week 2019. It will bring together policy-makers, public & private investors and the social sectors to discuss concrete plans for ensuring there is sufficient support for the development and financing of quality local social projects via InvestEU.
The InvestEU Programme, which aims to support investment, innovation and job creation in Europe, comes as an opportunity to boost both public and private investment into quality social projects. Whilst the general orientation of the proposed InvestEU program is a significant improvement on the European Fund for Strategic Investments, more work is needed to ensure the InvestEU’s framework meets the real investment demand from organisations on-the-ground, active in the social field. In other words, it is crucial to raise awareness and boost the capacity of the social, health, education and housing sectors to develop investable proposals that can function at local level.
