Whereas many public bodies have used loans, guarantees or equity in the past, the current engagement with the private sector requires new ways of financing and the EU money is subsequently used to provide support for innovative investments by way of loans, guarantees, or equity.
You will be actively involved in the training. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussions on practical problems. You will have ample opportunities to present your own problematic issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.
Do you want to ensure that our experts cover the topics most interesting for you? Just send us your cases and questions in advance. We will forward them to our speakers who will include your issues into the programme and tackle them during the training.
All information concerning your problems and cases will be treated confidentially.
