This groundbreaking study seeks to identify areas where further synergies could be developed between the European Investment Bank (EIB) and European Commission services, particularly the Directorate-General for Regional Policy (Regional Policy DG). Although these institutions pursue common objectives established by the European decision-making bodies, there are clear limits to synergies, as to their rationale and approaches tend to differ significantly in terms of the main characteristics of their retrospective instruments, implementation times, types of beneficiaries, schemes of deployment, project development and selection mechanisms. The study thus makes a series of recommendations designed to provide fresh input to future deliberations of the European Parliament.
