Research & Development

Research and development activities (RD) have 3 objectives:

  • Broaden the level of knowledge on credit guarantee schemes with a
    particular attention on Southern Mediterranean ones;
  • Provide tailored expertise on the desirability and feasibility of
    new guarantee instruments for MSMEs in the Southern Mediterranean such as
    equity guarantees and counter guarantee funds;
  • Propose evidence-based policy options to enhance CGS performance,
    outreach and operating environment taking into account Euro-Mediterranean
    cooperation frameworks.

The Euro-Mediterranean Guarantee Network (EMGN) is promoted by the Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association (EMEA), the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMED) and with the support of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
