Potential complementarities between EFSI and ERDF in Catalonia 4 EFSI Catalonia Financial needs addressed by EFSI Possible complementarities with Catalonia’s ERDF OP Direct financing of big projects (above 25 MEUR) Only a few big projects have been identified and are in progress. Many of the projects identified do not fulfil the EFSI conditions. There are difficulties to find private investors for big projects of public interest. ERDF OP does not include big investment projects (exceptions!) Financing of investment platforms Future launching of an Investment Platform for energy efficiency projects for ESCO. In the future there could be other thematic investment platforms Investment platforms are not included in the ERDF OP. But they could be included in the future. Financing through financial intermediaries and through operations with NPB The ICF and other financial institutions are providing financing to SME with EIB funds. The ERDF OP promotes financial instruments to SME. Currently there are no complementarities between EFSI and ERDF at the instrument level. There could be in the future.
  5. 5. Examples of further potential complementarities between ERDF OP 5 RIS3CAT instruments (cofinanced by the ERDF OP) Potential complementarities of RIS3CAT instruments with EFSI RIS3CAT communities are groups of companies and R&I stakeholders that promote R&I plans for the economic transformation of production activities. ERDF OP subsidises RIS3CAT communities’ collaborative high risk R&I projects to increase the competitiveness of the Catalan economic sectors. EFSI could finance the investment that is not eligible for ERDF. R&D cooperation projects (nuclis tecnològics) of companies in collaboration with research and technological centres. ERDF OP subsidises high risk R&I projects of companies. EFSI could finance the investment that is not eligible for ERDF. Innovation Public Procurement program focused on social and sanitary needs and on circular economy. The ERDF OP is cofinancing the public procurement of innovation. EFSI could provide financing to companies applying to the public biddings, to develop new solutions to the public sector challenges.
