Get to know about

European Investment Project Portal


The European Investment Project Portal (EIPP, the Portal) is a public web portal established by the European Commission in order to provide greater visibility to EU projects and transparency about EU investment opportunities. By creating a common meeting point for EU project promoters and investors, the EIPP supports investment in the real economy and it is an important component of the Investment Plan for Europe.

The Portal provides a transparent forward-looking pipeline of EU investment projects spread over 25 high-economic-potential sectors with a considerable number of projects coming from the sectors of R&D and Innovation. As of March 2017 the Portal has published 140 projects, many of them being cross-border ones.

For publication on the EIPP, a project must fulfil the following eligibility criteria:
·       Have a total cost of at least € 5 million,
·       Fall under one of the 25 pre-determined high-economic-value-added sectors,
·       Be expected to start within three years of submission,
·       Be promoted by a public or private legal entity established in an EU country,
·       Be compatible with all applicable EU and national laws.

Published projects' information is presented in a structured format which can be filtered according to investor's preferences (e.g. country, sector, project cost). To make the Portal more attractive for the promoters, the minimum permissible project size was recently lowered to EUR 5 million. Furthermore, the EIPP actively continues to develop its features, such as the registration process and search tools in order to further improve the service offered for both investors and promoters.
