We all know that there are plenty of great ideas that can create jobs and sustain growth in our regions but sourcing finance to get them off the ground can be a problem.

That is why, the Investment Plan for Europe aims to generate at least €315 billion of funding for projects in key strategic areas to get more people back to work and to stimulate economic and social progress. The plan is already showing results, with approved projects in 26 EU countries, including Ireland, expected to trigger more than €115 billion of new investment, and many more Irish SMEs can benefit from the initiative.
