INVESTING IN THE FUTURE OF EUROPE: EIB’s Contribution To European Challenges

Investing in the Future of Europe, made in partnership with the European Investment Bank (EIB), is a series which brings together key European stakeholders to discuss the main economic needs and trends of our time, and how the EU should respond.

Since 2017, this series of panel discussions has been held online and offline with the support of our National Councils across the EU as well as in other neighbouring countries. Featuring debates involving members of civil society, EU institutions, national governments, and further stakeholders such as businesses and employer organisations, the events offer a much-needed opportunity to highlight the benefits of European integration and to discuss how to invest in the European Union and the well-being of its citizens.

In 2023, this series will focus on celebrating 65 years of the EIB, taking stock of what the institution has accomplished while also taking a glance at what the future holds.


  1. Exploring the role of EIB and its mission in shaping Europe
    Since its creation in 1958, the European Investment Bank has played an important role in promoting economic growth, innovation, and sustainability across the EU, helping to advance the EU’s integration and cooperation objectives.
  2. Tackling pressing issues facing Europe
    This year, the series will focus on the topic of the green transition and ensuring the Union’s independence. Previous edition of this series adressed the EU’s plan for recovery and long-term resilience and reforms and investments needed to build back Ukraine’s economy and infrastructure.


Since its launch in 2017, the series has already seen events in numerous European countries, including in Poland, France, Serbia, Ireland, Denmark, Estonia, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Finland, as well as digital events during the pandemic.
