The social development bank in Europe

Education is a fundamental social right embedded in the Council of Europe’s principles, bringing significant benefits to society. An educated and skilled workforce is essential for a country’s competitiveness, particularly in today’s knowledge economy.

The CEB funds education projects at all levels, whether in preschools, primary and secondary schools or universities. Its comprehensive approach to funding education includes both infrastructural projects (construction and modernisation of school and university establishments, housing for students, sports facilities) as well as “soft” investments, such as vocational training programmes.
