Social Infrastructure Investment: from local innovative ideas to investEU Project Funding
EASPD, Housing Europe, Eurohealthnet, FEANTSA, the Lifelong Learning Platform, AGE Platform Europe and Social Services Europe wish to invite you to the upcoming Conference on “Social Infrastructure Investment, from local innovative ideas to InvestEU project funding”, taking place on the 18th October in Brussels (venue to be confirmed).
The High-Level Taskforce on Social Infrastructure Investment’s 2018 report “Boosting Investment in Social Infrastructure in Europe” highlighted an investment gap in social infrastructure alone to be €150 billion per year for the next ten years. Meeting such a gap is a necessity if we are to future proof and build up the resilience of Europe’s social model.
The event will bring together a mixture of national and European representatives from the social and the banking sectors, as well as public authorities, in order to discuss and exchange views on the role of the European Union in unlocking the much needed investment into local innovative social infrastructure projects. The objective is to identify solutions to the current bottlenecks which hinder the transformation of ideas for better social, health, education and housing services into viable infrastructure projects for the EU Investment Plan and – soon- the InvestEU programme.
