EU Funds in PPPs - Project Stocktake and Case Studies, European PPP Expertise Centre (EPEC), June 2012
The subject of how to combine European Union (EU) grant funding and PPPs has been of great interest in recent years. The idea of leveraging grant funding with private sector financing through public-private partnership (PPP) structures is appealing to many Member States in their current fiscal position. The subject of how to combine private finance in a PPP structure with EU funds will remain relevant for the foreseeable future. EPEC is working on a number of initiatives to help its members and the public in general to gain awareness of the challenges inherent in combining PPPs with EU grants, to better understand how some projects have succeeded and under what conditions and finally to provide guidance on the matter. This note takes stock of projects that have successfully combined PPP structures with EU funds and is published alongside a case study of a project currently attempting to combine EU funds and a PPP.
