The European Union is currently negotiating its next multi-annual financial framework (EU budget) for the period 2021-2027. As part of this framework, the European Commission has proposed to create the InvestEU programme, which will serve as an extension to the EU Investment Plan and, broadly speaking, function as a similar instrument: to help organisations get access to better loans.
The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union are currently negotiating with the European Commission on the InvestEU programme.
Based on our engagement with national social service providers over the last few years, EASPD has actively played a role in supporting the design of InvestEU itself, as well as bringing fresh ideas into the current negotiation; outlined in the following documents:
- EASPD’s position on the next EU budget proposal
- Social Services Europe’s Initial Remarks on the EU budget proposal
- Social Services Europe’s position on the European Commission’s InvestEU proposal
- The Steering Board for Social Infrastructure’s Position Paper on the European Commission’s InvestEU proposal
EASPD is continuing to monitor the ongoing negotiations and an analysis of the final agreement will be made available on this website.
