European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker last week provided details of his plan to mobilise €315bn of public and private investment over the next five years to revive Europe’s economy. Just €21bn of initial public money is intended to lift 15 times as much in capital, a leverage ratio that many have already dismissed as unrealistic. Juncker has cited transport infrastructure, energy efficiency and schools’ IT as among the types of projects he envisages the money being spent on.

  • Can the €315bn plan address Europe’s post-crisis investment woes?
  • How can the EU facilitate the private sector’s role?
  • On what types of projects should most of the money be spent?
  • What pipeline of major investable projects already exists – across the EU – and how can this be pipeline be improved?
