Financial Instruments under the ESF 2014-2020


The conference "Financial Instruments under the ESF 2014-2020" will conclude a series of regional fi-compass ESF seminars which began in the autumn of 2015. Participants can expect to further their understanding of how ESF financial instruments can help in their efforts to deliver ESIF 2014-2020 objectives.

Two days of back-to-back advisory events will take place on 2 and 3 February 2016. The purpose of this conference is to:

  • Outline the major EU social policy objectives in relation to use and implementation of financial instruments under the ESF;
  • Stimulate exchange and discussion on examples, advantages, features and suitability of financial instruments in delivering ESF 2014-2020 objectives among managing authorities and social policy stakeholders;
  • Present the regulatory framework and key novelties of the financial instruments and the fi-compass support available;
  • Provide the opportunity to discuss in depth the technical challenges that Member States and managing authorities are facing at the moment in regard to the design and set up of financial instruments; and
  • Inspire new concepts for financial instruments by reviewing latest developments in the area of social investment.

Input for the discussions at this workshop will come from conclusions from three regional seminars on financial instruments delivering the ESF, organised by fi-compass in Paris, Rome and Warsaw between September and November 2015. A snapshot of the lively discussions held during those events can be found here.

The deadline for registration is 26 January 2016.
