How to close the European Investment Gap

This paper compares and evaluates eleven proposals, which suggest policies and institutional arrangements to close the European investment gap. fes.fes-europe.webseiten.cc/fileadmin/public/editorfiles/publications/562_European_investment-june_adpt.pdf

 

The differences between the proposals analyzed here are notable but the majority of them share a large common ground regarding size, financing, institutional set-up and areas to invest in. Most proposals want to mobilize between 100 and 300 bn€ p.a. of private capital by leveraging funds from either the EU or government budgets or the EIB or new public investment funds. They intend to channel this capital into projects with long-term benefits for Europe, primarily infrastructure and energy.
