Multi-region assistance results
The European Commission's Multi-region assistance (MRA) programme was introduced to help Member States' managing authorities to assess the possible use of financial instruments in specific thematic areas of common interest.
Grants were provided for co-operation projects involving at least two managing authorities and this fi-compass article provides some insights from the people involved in using MRA for urban development.
Business benefits from financial instruments
New fi-compass videos help to share knowledge and experience from the people using financial instruments supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Our website’s video library playlists are being continuously updated with new films showcasing such testimonials.
The newest available videos include short interviews about the use of ESIF equity financial instruments from Germany, Greece, France and Latvia.
Furthermore, new videos in the fi-compass pipeline are being finalised that will present ERDF case study success stories from France, Italy, the Netherlands and Northern Ireland. These case study films feature interviews with final recipients who benefit from ERDF loans, guarantees and equity investments.
