Overview

The current policy framework for ESI Funds emphasises the need for a significant use of financial instruments with multiplied amounts of ESIF resources delivered to SMEs and other final recipients. Managing authorities within all ESI Funds are currently establishing and implementing the new financial instruments in forms of loans, guarantees and equity.

The Commission also supports the use of Financial Instrument by providing off-the-shelf instruments and enabling the managing authorities to get involved in the centrally managed Financial Instrument such as Horizon 2020, COSME, InnvoFin and the SME Initiative. Additionally, synergies are possible with resources under the Juncker Plan or European Fund for Strategic Investments.

Learn about the regulatory framework of Financial Instruments, how to monitor, audit and control Financial Instruments, how to close the operational programme and about main changes for 2021-2027.
