Last week, the European Commission appointed twelve external experts to become members of the Investment Committee of the InvestEU Program for a period of four years. Among them is also Dr. Andreja Kodrin, a member of SEB LU International Advisory Board.

The InvestEU Programme builds on the successful model of the Investment Plan for Europe, the Juncker Plan. It will bring together the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) and thirteen other EU financial instruments under one roof. The InvestEU program will consist of the InvestEU Fund, the InvestEU Advisory Hub and the Invest EU Portal.

The Programme aims to mobilise more than €372 billion of public and private investment through an EU budget guarantee of €26.2 billion, and provide an additional boost to sustainable investment, innovation and job creation in Europe.

The InvestEU Programme is uniquely suited to provide long-term funding to companies and to support EU policies in a recovery from a deep economic and social crisis. In the current crisis, the market allocation of resources is not fully efficient and the perceived risk impairs private investment flow significantly. The Programme, whose budget stems partly from Next Generation EU, is able to provide crucial support to companies in the recovery phase. At the same time, and in line with its original goals, it ensures a strong focus of investors on the EU’s medium- and long-term policy priorities such as the European Green Deal, the European Green Deal Investment Plan and the Strategy on shaping Europe’s digital future.

InvestEU also supports activities of strategic importance to the EU, in particular in view of enhanced resilience and of strengthening strategic value chains.

An independent Investment Committee, of which Dr. Andreja Kodrin is a member, approves the use of the EU guarantee for financing and investment operations proposed by the implementing partners.

The Programme will be structured around four policy windows: Sustainable Infrastructure, Research, Innovation and Digitisation, SMEs and Social Investment and Skills.

Dr. Kodrin will perform her role in the policy window Research, Innovation and Digitization. This policy window supports: Research, product development and innovation activities, Transfer of technologies and research results to the market, supporting market enablers and cooperation between enterprises, and Demonstration and deployment of innovative solutions and support to scaling up of innovative companies as well as digitisation of EU industry.
