The European Investment Bank (EIB) has provided its biggest research, development and innovation (RDI) loan to date to support science in Spain. The EUR 1.2bn in funds will finance the activities of public research centres and institutions in the country until 2020. The loan will help to support investments in several areas

of science and technology, especially those more closely linked with Spanish industry, with the aim of promoting the development of patents and new areas of research.

The EIB is providing these funds under InnovFin Science, a joint initiative of the EIB Group and the European Commission designed specifically to support RDI in Europe and backed by the EU’s research and innovation programme Horizon 2020.

The projects financed by the EU under this EIB loan will mobilise total investment of EUR 2.486bn and will have a positive effect on attracting and retaining research talent in Spain.

The EIB funds will be managed, among others, by the Agencia Estatal de Investigación (State Research Agency) created in 2015 for the management and financing of public funding for RDI. These resources will make it possible to support the research projects of Public Research Organisations (OPIS) and Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS) in several of Spain's autonomous communities. Centres such as the National Research Council (CSIC), the Carlos III Health Institute, the Geological and Mining Institute, the Spanish Oceanography Institute and the Energy and Environment Research Centre will be able to benefit from the favourable terms of the EIB's financing. The EU bank fund will be split between several knowledge areas: biology, chemistry and earth sciences; engineering and technology; agriculture; physics, mathematics and astronomy; social sciences and humanities; and health sciences.

This is the EIB's third operation with the Spanish Government to fund scientific projects in Spain. The first, signed in 2013, made it possible to provide EUR 625 million for RDI, while the second agreement granted EUR 515 million in 2014.
