The Portuguese Development Bank (BPF) is a central element in the implementation of public policies to support business development and investment. Given that incentive schemes of a hybrid nature still exist in Portugal, it is possible to combine the application of Cohesion Policy funds with the actions of the BPF, within the scope of the Bank’s role as a national partner in the implementation of InvestEU. The support provided in this context will be in the form of a grant and/or financial instrument, as described in the specific sections of each type of action, and will be complementary to those provided for in the PRR and the Regional OPs in Mainland Portugal, per the terms detailed in the description of each specific goal.
