Event Webinar

Presentation slides Webinar recording


On Thursday 26 August at 11:00am (CEST), EMN and MFC are hosting a webinar dedicated to the new measures recently announced by the European Commission and the European Investment Fund (EIF) under the Employment & Social Innovation (EaSI) programme.

This webinar will offer a detailed look into the measures announced in July 2020 under the EaSI Guarantee instrument, that aim to further incentivise financial intermediaries to lend money to small businesses, mitigating the sudden increase in perceived risk triggered by the coronavirus pandemic, and alleviating working capital and liquidity constraints of final beneficiaries targeted by the EaSI programme.

Our two presenters for this session are Dimitrios Niafas, Programme Officer at DG EMPL of the European Commission, and Per-Erik Eriksson, Head of Inclusive Finance at the EIF.
