Advisory Platform for Social Outcomes Contracting

Social outcomes contracting is an innovative form of procuring social services based on outcomes rather than outputs. Social outcomes contracting offers new opportunities for combining and directing public and private resources towards positive social impact. To support countries wishing to develop outcomes-based approaches, the Advisory Hub hosts the Advisory Platform for Social Outcomes Contracting - a joint initiative of the European Commission and the European Investment Bank Group.

Safer Transport Platform (STP) – Road Safety Advisory

The STP – Road Safety Advisory as hosted by the European Investment Advisory Hub (the Hub), is a gateway to advisory services to support the uptake of funding and financing opportunities for projects that improve road safety. It promotes road safety as an area of transport investment offering guidance and support to potential project promoters from the public and private sectors.

Circular Economy

Our linear take-make-use-dispose model is no longer viable. We therefore need a transition to a circular economy. EIB experts provide tailored financial and technical advice for circular economy projects, which may later be financed by EIB or other partner financial institutions.


URBIS is a new dedicated urban advisory platform within the European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH). URBIS is set up to provide advisory support to urban authorities to facilitate, accelerate and unlock urban investment projects, programmes and platforms.

Local delivery of investment advisory

The Hub seeks to cooperate with providers of similar services in Member States, to ensure broad coverage of needs through localised delivery of advisory services. National promotional banks or institutions are hereby invited to present their proposals for delivery of investment advisory services at local level, share their knowledge and/or develop capacity to deliver such services.
