10 10 European Investment Bank EIB Project Cycle

11 11 European Investment Bank EIB Participation to EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region Close co-operation with European Commission at the design and preparation phase EIB presence in the implementation of the Strategy in close co-operation with other IFIs (notably NIB & EBRD) and organisations in the macro region EIB operates in the macro region – extensive network Two regional offices Warsaw Helsinki JASPERS, JEREMIE and JESSICA presence in the region

12 12 European Investment Bank The BSS Trust Fund Idea EIB is willing to explore the potential for a BSS Trust Fund The Trust Fund could develop TA activities in the Baltic Sea Region countries with special focus on the Flagship Projects of the EUSBSR The Trust Fund would reinforce and complement JASPERS which mainly serves the preparation phase of projects related to Structural Funds project applications The Trust Fund would focus on 1) Preparation of investment projects which are of importance for the EUSBSR without falling under the remit of JASPERS (e.g., because not drawing on grants from EU Structural Funds) 2) Technical support to the implementation of investment projects, whether prepared by JASPERS or not

13 13 European Investment Bank The Establishment of the BSS Trust Fund The Trust Fund could be established in association with the EIB It could draw on contributions from (i) multilateral contributors, e.g., the Commission, (ii) bilateral contributors, such as EU Member States and their development agencies, (iii) other countries and their institutions and (iv) IFIs active in the BSR The details of the Trust Fund would have to be worked out with the participating Member States and the Commission; they should be based upon cost-recovery principles compatible with EIB’s policy in relation to Trust Funds The Trust Fund would be available for TA only, and not for investment co-financing, loan guarantee cost financing, interest rate subsidy or risk capital operations As the Fund Manager EIB could provide its own EIB technical and financial expertise, but could also provide assistance through hiring external consultants
