The start of 2019 has seen a number of new resources for ERDF practitioners published on the fi-compass website. The event page for FI Campus 2018 is now online with links to all the materials from our flagship event. The new event page for the FIRECE project features materials on energy efficiency, which is also the theme of our new case study from Greece to be published shortly.
Video testimony from speakers at the FI Campus 2018 event is now available on the fi-compass website. The interviews, which are featured in the ‘What they say’ section of the fi-compass video library, provide insight into a number of financial instruments that were featured at the event.
The fi-compass website showcases an increasing library of video case studies and interviews highlighting multiple ways that managing authorities have implemented financial instruments, offering insightful advice from the practitioners.
These success stories feature all ESI Funds and multiple Member States, including different objectives, implementation options and financial products. Examples from loan funds highlight support for fishing communities, energy efficiency, young farmers, social enterprises, SMEs and self-employment, and an equity fund for start-ups.
