The Financial Instrument “fi-compass” was launched by the European Commission and the European Investment Bank on January 19th in Brussels, as the new platform for advisory services on financial instruments under the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) and microfinance under the Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI). A consortium consisting of SWECO, T33, Spatial Foresight, the University of Strathclyde and OIR have been awarded with a three year framework contract supporting this endeavour. Senior expert Bernd Schuh from OIR will be providing expertise in the field of Financial Instruments and EAFRD and EFF. The first assignment which will be launched will be the development of a Handbook for the ex-ante assessment of FI in the agricultural sector considering specific sub-sectors like vegetables, life-stock and others.
