Regions and cities are facing big challenges to stimulate the economy and improve their citizens’ quality of life. The EIB Group responds to these needs by supporting investments in social housing, education, small businesses or post-disaster recovery, among many others.
What type of support do we provide? Who can benefit? And what difference does it make? Explore the resources below, part of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) coordinated by the European Committee of Regions.

How to make the most of EFSI
If someone were to offer you EUR 500 billion to tackle the biggest challenges our continent faces, how would you spend the money? Through the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), part of the Investment Plan for Europe, the EIB Group is helping get Europe back on track after years of financial and economic hardship.
Boosting urban development projects
The array of EU financing and advisory programmes available to cities is so wide that finding the best solution for their needs can become a challenge.
URBIS, a new urban advisory platform created by the European Commission and the EIB, has been set up to help urban authorities access tailor-made solutions and accelerate their urban investment projects.
