The intent of InvestEU is to motivate public and private investor participation in financing and investment operations by providing guarantees from the EU budget to address failures and sub-optimal investment situations. The revised Commission proposal increased the budget for InvestEU and includes a new window for strategic European investments, in addition to the previously proposed policy windows.
The Council indicates that the EU guarantee will amount to 23.5 billion euro and provisioned at a rate of 40%.
The guarantee provided by the EU is distributed across four policy windows:
- The sustainable infrastructure window (35%)
- The research, innovation and digitisation window (27.5%)
- The SME window (27.5%)
- The Social investment and skills window (10%)
