EIB Group Support for the Social Sector

    Release date: 31 May 2017

Since the EIB Group’s inception, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Investment Fund (EIF) have been contributing to European policy on growth and development through lending in support of the social sector – including health, cultural and creative industries, education and housing but also social enterprises and vulnerable groups.

As a result of its critical importance to European development and well-being, social infrastructure support has gained a permanent presence in the Bank’s lending portfolio.

It is key to the Bank’s contribution to the EU’s social agenda and underpins its activity in fostering social cohesion and innovation through social projects.
