Nordic-European joint response to EU-regulations

  • Publisert 13.02.2012
The Nordic-European Public Investor Initiative has responded to the European Commission’s consultation on the draft Structural Fund Regulations for the 2014-2020 Programming Period. A joint written memorandum has been delivered to DG Regio och DG Research & Innovation within the European Commission.

The Nordic-European Public Investor Initiative is the network of 11 national public investors in the field of seed capital and venture capital funds as well as the European Investment Fund. The initiative members are drawn from 8 countries in northern Europe and together the 11 national investors have over 1600 portfolio companies and more than 3.2 BEURO under management. The Initiative is part financed by Nordic Innovation and coordinated by the Nordic independent private equity advisory firm, Nordic Investment Solutions.

The Initiative is aimed at enhancing the output of public investing in young high potential companies. The Structural Funds Regulations are an important part of the EU policy for financing young companies and jointly influencing the policy is therefore vital.
