The 'Junker Plan' and supporting instruments for stakeholders

On 18th January, the Brussels office of Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino hosted the 'Innovation & Investment' Working Group meeting. The briefing focused on the implementation of the Investment Plan for Europe, also known as "Juncker plan", which aims at mobilizing at least 315 billion Euros of public and private investment over three years. Particular reference was made to the support tools for stakeholder, such as the European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH), a joint initiative of the European Commission and the European Investment Bank, the European Investment Project Portal (EIPP), and other initiatives put in place by the European Commission.

On the one hand the European Investment Advisory Hub offers a single access point to a wide range of advisory services; the aim is to ensure that good projects do not miss the opportunity to take off because of technical and financial problems. On the other hand the EIPP Web portal allows project developers based within EU borders to reach potential investors worldwide. Both instruments have been established in order to support the objectives of the European Fund for Strategic Investments.


The second part of the meeting presented the topic of Regional Entrepreneurial Strategies, in particular the European Entrepreneurial Region award, established in 2009 by the Committee of the Regions. The EER initiative encourages the implementation of the Small Business Act for Europe at regional and local level, and underpins efforts towards the achievement of the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy. All local public authorities that are implementing a forward-looking business strategy can apply by 18th March 2016.
