Italian schools get additional €530m of funding

23 Nov 16 The European Investment Bank (EIB) has announced a 50% increase in its funding for the Italian government's programme to modernise schools and improve safety.

In addition to the €940m (£777m) already allocated last year, a further €530m will be provided under a memorandum of understanding signed in Rome yesterday. The memorandum was signed on the first National School Safety Day, mandated by the ‘Buona Scuola’ – ‘Good School’ law.

The loan will cover restructuring operations, compliance with safety and seismic standards, energy efficiency and the construction of new school buildings.
