Manual (Scoping study for the use of financial instruments under the EMFF and related advisory support activities)

The European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) policy framework emphasises the need for more use of financial instruments in 2014-2020: the overall aim is therefore to deliver more ESIF funding through financial instruments in the future. To help achieve this, the European Commission, in partnership with the EIB, has set up a single advisory platform on ESIF financial instruments for the programming period 2014-2020. This advisory platform is called fi-compass.

fi-compass DG MARE Survey featured in DG MARE Farnet newsletter

The fi-compass DG MARE survey is highlighted in the current edition of the Farnet newsletter. The survey seeks feedback from EMFF managing authorities on their experience of using (and not using) financial instruments in the current programming period.

The closing date of the survey is Friday 21st June 2019. All EMFF managing authorities are encouraged to provide feedback to this important survey in order to shape the future use of financial instruments post 2020.
