On 27 March 2017, the Jacques Delors Institute organised, in cooperation with the French Economic, Social and Environmental Council, a conference in Paris entitled 'Social investment and the Juncker Plan', which was chaired by Eulalia Rubio, senior researcher at the Jacques Delors Institute (JDI). The panelists included: Samuel Clause, Senior Investment Manager at the European Investment Fund (EIF); José Manuel Fernandes, member of the Budget Committee of the European Parliament; Thomas Bignal, Investment Policy Advisor at the European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD); Robin Huguenot-Noël, researcher at the European Policy Center (EPC).

The following summary, written by Sofia Fernandes, senior research fellow at the Jacques Delors Institute, surveys the key points of the debate: the presentation of the Investment Plan for Europe, its contribution to social investment, the issue of how it relates to other instruments for social investment and proposals to strengthen the Plan’s contribution to social investment in Europe.
