The European Union provides different types of funding for investment projects. Projects can be financed through grants or financial instruments.
Grants for the preparation and implementation of project proposals are awarded via a call for proposals/tender. Eligibility of applicants, activities and costs are strictly defined, as well as the amount of co-financing (percentage).
For information about the available calls for proposals, please contact our team of EU specialists in Zagrebačka banka and you will be provided with all relevant information about the financing options available for your projects.

Unlike grant funding, financial instruments include measures of financial support in the form of investments loans, guarantees, equity and other risk-sharing mechanisms, possibly combined with technical support, interest rate subsidies and guarantee fee subsidies.
Financial instruments facilitate access to finance for investment projects facing market barriers when trying to qualify for a loan, and which have a multiplier effect – the initial investment stimulates other investments and the economy, while mobilizing small amounts of public funds.
