European funds Next Generation EU

In addition, we offer assistance to companies and other organisations in the identification and exploitation of opportunities arising from the implementation of these European funds. Afi’s technical assistance is, on the one hand, related to support in the identification and monitoring of NGEU aid programmes. And, on the other hand, the accompaniment to take advantage of the European Next Generation EU funds. 

This first service consists of: 

  • Monitoring of new developments on the implementation of the funds.
  • Identification and analysis of new calls of interest, by means of summary sheets.
  • Analysis of the requirements of reference calls for proposals. 

Regarding the second dimension, we offer:

  • Accompaniment in the preparation of the necessary documentation to apply for grants.
  • Attention to any doubts that may arise.
  • Collaboration in the preparation of project reports for competitive calls for applications for grants.
  • Interlocution and possible accompaniment in meetings of presentation/justification of the project with the central or autonomous administrations for the defence of the candidatures of the projects. 

Financial instruments

In the field of public policy, there has been an increased use of repayable financial instruments by various administrations and public entities, alongside traditional grants, to support activities and groups. These instruments make it possible to leverage private funding and generate returns for similar objectives.

The variety of instruments, such as loans, guarantees and equity, seeks to optimise public management to amplify the impact of policies, as seen in the Spanish allocation of Next Generation EU Funds.

For this reason, Afi designs financial instruments to assist public administrations at national, regional and local levels; existing development agencies with competences in supporting the productive sector; finance institutes; private financial, guarantee, loan, insurance and investment entities; and private companies.

These instruments are intended to assist in:

  • Balance sheet management.
  • Strategies for acting in retail markets.
  • Exposure to credit or market risk.
  • Solvency and liquidity planning.
  • Analysis of the impact, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency and relevance of instruments.
  • Implementation: calls for expressions of interest, organisational and operational models, assessment of operations to be financed and financing agreements.
  • State aid analysis and compatibility of financial instruments.
  • Management and procedures manuals for financial instruments.
  • The structuring of projects and economic-financial justification for obtaining European funds.
