The Implications of EIB and EBRD Co-Financing for the EU Budget - Follow up

15-03-2013

This study is a follow up to the 2011 study commissioned by the European Parliament’s Committee on Budgets "The implications of EIB and EBRD co-financing for the EU budget". It explores how the recommendations made in that earlier study have been taken up by the actors within the EU institutions, evaluates how far changes have been implemented which are in line with the proposals contained within that report and reflects on how visible EP studies are in general. It finds that although visibility needs to be improved, this study has had a clear policy impact nevertheless.
