European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities: InvestEU & the Economy of Well-being – Making the most of local know-how

4 December, 14:30-16:30 | European Parliament, room ASP A1G2, Rue Wiertz 60, Brussels B-1047, Belgium

Alfred Sant, Member of the European Parliament and the Steering Board for Social Infrastructure investment invites you to the upcoming European Parliament Seminar on ‘InvestEU & the Economy of Well-being: making the most of local know-how’.

The Steering Board for Social Infrastructure Investment brings together the main representatives of the social services, health, education, social and affordable housing and ageing sectors at European level. Together, we represent thousands of both public and private organisations providing services which enable millions of people in Europe to access their human and social rights, to live healthier, to be empowered and to live in dignity, as well as the largest European network of organisations of and for older persons.

Many of these services require investment to help deliver more and better services and strengthen the Economy of Well-being across the continent. InvestEU thus comes as an opportunity to boost both public and private investment into quality social projects. Whilst the general orientation of the proposed InvestEU program is a significant improvement on the European Fund for Strategic Investments, more work is needed to ensure the InvestEU’s framework meets the real demand from project promoters, active in the social field and brings genuine additionality. In other words, it is crucial to boost the capacity of the social, health, education and housing sectors to develop both InvestEU-friendly & high quality projects.

This Joint Event will bring together policy-makers, public & private investors and the social sectors to discuss concrete plans for ensuring there is sufficient support for the development and financing of quality local social projects via InvestEU.
