Multi-region assistance: potential use of financial instruments supported by the ERDF, CF, ESF and EAFRD

Deadline

Doelstellingen

The Europe 2020 strategy and the Commission Communication on the MFF 2014-2020 called for a stronger role of financial instruments (FIs) in 2014-2020.  To develop the necessary knowledge base and to improve the administrative capacity of the bodies involved in the implementation of financial instruments, the Commission (notably DG REGIO, DG AGRI, DG EMPL and DG MARE) are making available technical assistance and advisory services to the benefit of Member States, its managing authorities/intermediate bodies and other stakeholders. These assistance and advisory services will be delivered in a coherent way via a common facility, called fi-compass, which consists of two strands: 

  • the horizontal strand, provided by the European Commission in partnership with the EIB, which delivers advisory services and guidance applicable in all Member States to all types of financial instruments to ensure common standards and consistency (e.g. exchange of good practice, networking, training, methodological guidance on common themes such as ex-ante assessments, public procurement, state aid, etc.);
  • the multi-region assistance will provide EU funding to projects which aim at assessing possible use of FIs, involve expertise from international or national financial institutions, and are proposed by at least two managing authorities/intermediate bodies, normally from at least two EU Member States. Such projects will target possible use of FIs in priority investment areas that are specific and/or shared by the applying regions (e.g. the financing of energy efficiency interventions in large housing estates in Central and Eastern Europe or support for inclusion of Roma).

 This call for proposals aims at the selection of actions to be co-financed under ficompass multi-region assistance which would assess the potential use of financial instruments under the programmes co-funded by the ERDF, CF, ESF and EAFRD in accordance with Title IV of Regulation (EU) 1303/2013. The objective is to improve the knowledge of managing authorities/intermediate bodies of programmes co-funded under ERDF, CF, ESF and EAFRD by building up relevant expertise for the possible use of specific financial instruments, their set-up and implementation, with regard to issues common to at least two regions in at least two distinct Member States to ensure a wider and smoother uptake of these instruments. Actions can be supported under one of the following themes or any combination of them:

  • A. Assessing the potential use of financial instruments as a form of support addressing thematic objectives under the programmes co-funded by European Regional Development Fund and/or the Cohesion Fund and specific to and shared by at least two regions from at least two distinct Member States;
  • B. Assessing the potential use of financial instruments as a form of support addressing thematic objectives under the programmes co-funded by the European Social Fund and specific to and shared by at least two regions from at least two distinct Member States;
  • C. Assessing the potential use of financial instruments as a form of support addressing thematic objectives under the programmes co-funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development specific to and shared by at least two regions from at least two distinct Member States.

EUR 2.5 million,B. EUR 0.5 million,C. EUR 1.4 million. The maximum grant amount per action combining A, B and/or C will be EUR 2.5 million. The grant will take the form of reimbursement of up to 95% of the actual eligible costs and is limited to the maximum grant amount as specified above.
